Inbound from Riverside

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.
