Framingham to Milford

The Milford Branch

Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

The Milford Branch of the Boston and Albany Railroad was built in 1847, and ran 12 miles between Framingham (where the B&A mainline was located) and the town of Milford. Two segments of the line were abandoned at different times; the end of the line was abandoned under Penn Central ownership, and the middle portion of the line under Conrail. The remainder of the line remains under CSX but is out of service.

Thanks to Mike Palmer for contributing information about this route.
