It also washed out the roadbed and trestle at Wareham Narrows. The handsome old Wareham Station (torn down by the New Haven in the late '50s or early '60s) had markings on the exterior wall indicating the height of flood waters in 1938 and 1954. If I recall they showed the 1954 depth at about 4 feet and 1938 a foot or so higher.

Two seasons in a row now the CapeFlyer trains have been mostly absent from the MBTA data which feeds all of the third-party applications (including mine). If / when the CapeFlyer train does show up in the data, it doesn't have any of the stop names. Also the entire data feed goes down once the CapeFlyer reaches its destination. (If you've ever seen my map app reporting "There may be a problem with this MBTA data feed right now" that's the reason 99% of the time.)
Also if the CapeFlyer train consist isn't assembled with a CTC and working PTIS then there's nothing to send the GPS location anyway.
the CCRTA, in coordination with MassDOT and the MBTA, is introducing the CapeFLYER train service...
