It was mostly your standard MBTA commuter train but with an Amtrak coach in between. Does anyone know why it was there? I know that the line is being upgraded north of Walpole. I assume it went Boston-Walpole-Mansfield-Boston.

This line is planned on getting the works, new ties and stone, to upgrade it to decent speeds...the current numbers are planed on replacing roughly 1300 ties a mile
