PHOTO: Union Freight Rails Live in Boston MA

The photo below was taken by Michael Wheeler on 10/13/12.  It shows Union Freight rails that still exist in Boston.  The Union Freight was a short line that connected the north and south sides of Boston.  It ran mostly at night, and in the end used New Haven power.

In the pavement on the south side of the Northern Avenue Bridge lies a real diamond. The left-to-right track is the Union Freight connection to the old New Haven RR yards, while the top-left to bottom-right track is part of the yards.
