Don't count your brake runs before they're placed.
There is a flat section of track where the MCBR used to be, but none of the pics I've seen so far show any actual brakes.
If they plan to run three trains (do they?) then they will have to have brakes installed there for blocking, but that doesn't mean that they'll be used in normal operations. We'll just have to wait and see. At any rate, without the problem of excessive wear on the track, there shouldn't be any need for them to slow down the train there (or stop it completely) like they used to.
