Re: Next Phase-Penn Station Amtrak construction

The Hell Gate carries the two Amtrak tracks, and one freight.
The HG freight track connects into Oak Point yard, but the two Amtrak tracks do not. The three run all the way north up to Pelham where the freight track merges with the Amtrak tracks.
I'm under the strong impression that this is the only connection between the freight track, and the Amtrak tracks. I.e. there is no connection between the freight and passenger tracks on HG or the Queens approach. If you were to change ends in Oak point and stay on the freight track over the HG you'd end up in Fresh Pond yard.
