The freight railroad (PanAm) who runs on the Fitchburg line is well known for their "we don't want your business"
attitude.

Rumor has it that the WEST people are secretly working on a plan to have a railroad tunnel constructed so the trains can go under the town.

When the new Old Colony line was built, the residents of Hingham forced the State to build a tunnel under downtown Hingham, and NO stops downtown. Now the residents are
upset due to nobody patronizing the downtown from the commuter rail line. I recall the tunnel added $150 million to the projects cost....

As an abutter, I just have to thank the town, the board of selectmen and all everyone who supported this for completely destroying my property value. My family purchased this land and built our home BEFORE THE ZONING was put into effect. Since then, between the Westminster Industrial Park a.k.a. sandpit and this layover project, the land has become less enjoyable and the value has gone into the toilet. More traffic, noise, dust and fumes than you'd ever imagine, and the layover station hasn't even started yet. Thanks for the big middle finger everyone.
