Cook St. Loop.

Cook street was the time table point, where New Havens line through Needham Heights ended and/or met B&As Highland branch. In summer 1973, major track work caused MBTA to construct a temporary turn back loop west of Newton Highlands station, making use of some of the historic alignment.

Wow - a three car train of PCCs! Neat picture! A few years back, MBTA upgraded all the Green line catenary to handle three car trains of Type 7s and type 8s but apparently they're rarely operated.
