Before Boston’s MBTA Orange Line went into the trench in 1987 it was (arguably) a beautiful elevated trainline. Forest Hills station would become my “ground zero”. Here are some pics from the late 70’s/ early 80’s, but looking very similar to the Forest Hills I knew going to school in 1986-1987…
West elevation Forest Hills station – looking East across site of former New Haven Railroad station.
View of concrete covered portion of elevated Mainline Structure (Section F-6) – looking Northeast along Washington Street at intersection of Arborway. Arborway overpass crosses overhead at left. In the background is the start of Section F-5. Arborway yard is at the center in the background.
View of elevated Mainline structure – looking North – along Washington Street at juncture of Section F-5 and Section F-6 (the concrete enclosed portion of structure). Remaining stub of the former incline that led down to the Arborway storage yards is at the right.
