Four railroad structures in Sudbury are still extant.

The former Sudbury freight house (on the Framingham & Lowell), built between 1871 and 1889. Now a private garage, moved about 300 yards from the ROW.


The former Sudbury station, built between 1871 and 1899. Now a private house, moved slightly west.

The former South Sudbury station, built around 1952 to replace a larger union station that had served the F&L and the Central Mass. Service on the F&L ended in 1933, so this building as just signed "Sudbury". Now a private business in the original location.


The former East Sudbury section house (for housing railroad workers and storing materials), built in 1890 for the Central Mass. Preserved by the historical society.
