East Brookfield to North Brookfield

The North Brookfield Railroad

Picture 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!

This 4-mile branch line was first built by the North Brookfield Railroad in 1876. It branched from the Boston and Albany Railroad's mainline in East Brookfield and ran to its namesake town; the line was also leased by the B&A.

The line was abandoned in the 1970s under Conrail. There have been recent efforts (in 2012) to re-establish freight rail traffic along the line.

Thanks to Mike Palmer for contributing information about this route.
