The Riverside (D) branch is the longest of the
Green Line routes, with downtown more than ten miles away.
Much of the right of way on this route was once a Boston & Albany suburban line.
Some of the current stations have appropriated structures used
by the former old commuter line. Light rail service began in the late 1950s,
a new line decades before most cities
considered reinstituting or expanding light rail transit routes.
This view is at the outbound terminal, and a train has just left along a right of way covered with fresh snow.
