G&U Progress in Milford??
Visited the north end of the MBTA-owned line at Milford, MA on Thursday 1/17/19 and saw that the MBTA has installed a new turnout about halfway between Depot St and S Cedar St (the crossing in the distance. Formerly the old turnout stub that used to connect to G&U was 50-100 yards south of S Cedar St where the red "oval" is. Switch stand has yet to be installed for the new switch and the narrowness of the RoW here suggests a track coming off the turnout will parallel the existing track for maybe a 100 yards. The question is what is going on here - is this really a new connection for a G&U build-out from Hopedale to Milford to service Garelick Farms and BlueLinx Building Supplies? We'll have to wait and see...
