    With an interlocking tower, this must have been a busy place, at one time long ago. Is that track we see still active? Was this originally Old Colony RR?

    There is a trash train about once a week, (Edit: once a day), and there is an 'Excursion Train' as far as Hyanis during the summer and sometimes fall. I don't think they go past the station but could be wrong. The trash train goes to Fall River where it is burned to generate electricity.
    It *used* to be run by the 'Providence and Worcester' but reading the below it appears there have been a lot of 'consolidations'.
