Railroad Stations in Massachusetts, now in its twenty-sixth year, is a site devoted to the history, location, and uses of railroad depots, whether still standing or long gone, throughout the thirteen counties of Massachusetts. Readers are invited to consult the tables and links below and submit additions, corrections, photos, and comments to make this a more detailed, more precise, and more complete site.  Nearly 1300 different stations are now pictured!

Anyone interested in seeking out the stations listed on this website or the locations where former stations once stood is strongly urged to consult Matt Cosgro's excellent website  Nashua City Station for clear maps of every station site in the state of Massachusetts (and throughout New England).

A rare but necessary commercial advertisement on this site: John H. Roy Jr.'s comprehensive and painstakingly researched book A Field Guide to Southern New England Railroad Depots and Freight Houses has been published by Branch Line Press of Pepperell MA.  Click here for more information and to order a copy.  This book joins Karr's and Lindsell's books as indispensible works on rail lines in southern and northern New England.

A few notes if you're planning on visiting these stations:

If I don't have a piece of information, such as a built date or street, you'll see a ???. Please e-mail me a message if you are able to contribute information to this page. Be sure to include what station you are referring to (railroad and city).

Photos: A camera alilcam.gif (72 bytes) next to a town or city name indicates an image of that station located in the archive; a red camera indicates an historical map image of the station.  Click on either camera to see the image.  As I often receive duplicate photos or different views of the same station, I will occasionally rotate different people's photos on the county pages. If you send me a photo scan, I will inscribe an attribution to you; if you prefer to do it yourself, please inscribe in small letters at top or bottom the year of the photo, and your full name. I typically will list multiple camera symbols; on the Counties pages, this usually signifies current photos plus black-and-white images from days gone by (for purposes of comparison), while on the Other Stations Page, these usually signify multiple "historical" black-and-white images. I believe that all photos and other images included at this site that are not attributed to the individuals who submitted them are in the public domain and that their use does not violate any copyright laws; please write to me if you know this not to be the case for any image here.  For the record, I allow no advertising and make no money from the site; in fact, it costs me money to maintain it.
