King Street Underpass at the Transit HUB
There is a definite shift in the tracks, I don't see how the original alignment could be returned though, because the bridge is in the wrong place. Hopefully they will stretch out the curves so that it doesn't slow trains down. They should already be going somewhat slowly, but right now, they just crawl up to the station. They could shave a half minute of travel time off here easily.

As for incline, the bridge may have raised the track, but it doesn't change the long distance profile towards Stratford, the crossings at West and Park are still at grade, and that grade hasn't changed, the incline starts afterwards.

I just spent some time going back through the old pictures of this. I almost forgot what it looked like before the underpass. Wow.
