Back in the 50s my family used to visit my cousins in Davis Square, Somerville. Invariably we'd end up down the street watching the long freight train s on the Fitchburg Cutoff. It was great fun watching the trains rumble through with a red caboose at the end. I was disappointed when I got back from the service to find that line gone. I also remember a B&M tower in the center of Davis Square. What did they control from there? I thought the cutoff was pretty much a straight through. Does anyone remember the tower?
