End of the Line

As is often the case in Boston, trains continue beyond the last stop to reverse direction.  A single platform allows for the passenger easily to double back, for those who happen to enjoy riding around on subway lines. 

Different parts of the Orange Line are adjacent to other passenger rail activity -- one local "T" commuter route, and two joint Amtrak-commuter routes.  Most of the Orange Line reconstruction to the north was built alongside existing Boston and Maine railroad right of way.  The headlight of a Boston-bound commuter train is barely visible in the distance.
