Waltham North - Clematis Brook Branch

A quotation from "Lost Railroads of New England," by R.D. Karr:
Abandoned: 1994. Opened: 1881.

[The segment from Waltham North to Clematis Brook] was virtually the last surviving remnant of the Boston-Northampton main line of the Massachusetts Central (Central Massachusetts) RR. The Boston & Lowell RR eventually took over operation of the line in 1886, and in turned passed it to the B&M in 1887. Passenger service out of Boston was provided on the entire segment until 1958, when Hudson became the terminus. After 1965 the trains went no farther than South Sudbury. Passenger service ended altogether in 1971.
