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.
