MA - East Boston Branch Rail Trail

Post by Tracer » Wed Jan 07, 2009 10:27 pm

Anyone walk any of this yet? I havent walked it(only driven next to it), but i was happy to see that they restored that 3 stall engine house, its now the YMCA, but it looks great.<<<(i think it was an engine house, correct me if i'm wrong). It was also neat to see that conrail caboose at the end of the line. How did the cabosse get there? Was it left there or did they bring it in??

Anything else worth seeing on this line?
(hopefully more than 3 people see this :P )
