Did we ever get an answer to the question on what exactly they're upgrading as part of the current weekend closures? They've said it's for PTC (positive train control for forcibly slowing down a speeding train), but are they also doing CBTC, the guts of the signal system upgrade we really need?

After this summer, will CBTC be installed or will it just be PTC that gets done and we'll have to endure yet another closure later in the year?

EDIT: We were promised CBTC by the end of this year and I haven't seen anything mentioned, so I hope that's not once again delayed by several years.
