Active and Inactive Tracks

This scene looks southerly from the city-bound platform at Dorchester.  The South Hills Village tracks go to and from the right.  The other set of tracks, showing considerable rust, once took trolleys to and from Drake. 

Drake trains operated until 1999.  The route had been lessened in importance by the opening of the South Hills Village link in the 1980s.  The closing was not considered permanent, but funds for reconstruction have been unavailable to date, and there are no present plans for the line's restoration.
