Charles MGH T Station, is the only above-ground station north of Andrew on the Red Line; it crosses the Charles River into Cambridge on the Longfellow (aka Salt-and-Pepper) Bridge. It's also pretty old and unpleasant in winter. And it's undergoing a major renovation.

Although I pass through Charles nearly every day, most of the work isn't visible from the train. Today, I happened to walk past the outside for the first time in a while...and wow. It's looking really amazing.

The new portion is almost complete, at least on the outside.

The juxtoposition of old and new is typical Boston.

According to the MBTA, they are retaining and restoring much
of the existing platform structure, which is nice to see.

I know! I was stunned...you can't really tell what they're doing at all from inside a train.

Wow! I like how, even with the glass, it looks a bit like the older Charles station
