How long have they been referring to the nearly-built tracks between JBAB and Anacostia as a "provisioning" track? IMNSHO, this makes vastly more sense than the idea to run passenger service between the north entrance to JBAB and Anacostia with a stop at Barry Farms, which is what I had thought the plan had been. In fact, I recall that DDOT had kept telling us that the streetcars they are in physical possession of were actually destined for revenue service on this diminutive Anacostia Line (so don't worry that they need overhead wires because overhead wires are OK in Anacostia and they haven' bought the streetcars for H street yet). But this update seems to clearly spell out that no, they aren't going to run line to nowhere that nobody will ride.
