A switch failure on June 26 caused significant service disruption on the Framingham/Worcester Line. As a result, CSX Corporation has made a commitment to convert 12 crossover switches to dual control switches. The converted switches will allow manual switch operation by the Conductor in the event of a switch failure. The result: dramatically reduced delays.
Conversion of the switches will cause delays to off peak trains only between 7:30PM and 5:30AM, Tuesday August 18th through Sunday August 30th. Delays of up to 20 minutes are anticipated.
