Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ashmont on signs as Ashmont/Peabody Sq. is located on the Red Line in Dorchester, Massachusetts. It opened on September 1, 1928, and is the subway terminal for the Red Line's Dorchester Branch. Ashmont is also the terminus of the Light rail Ashmont-Mattapan High Speed Line, which loops around on each side of the station, with platforms between the sets of tracks. Towards the end of the Ashmont renovations, new sign were put in that now read ASHMONT/PEABODY SQ., but this change will not appear on any new maps or publications. The first Ashmont Station was a simple building along the original Shawmut Branch of the Old Colony Railroad, which opened in 1872. That was when steam locomotives powered the passenger trains that continued into Boston with a stop at Fields Corner. The current intermediate Shawmut Station was not created as a train stop until the Shawmut Branch of the steam railroad was adapted to electrified subway service in the late 1920s and placed underground as it approached Ashmont Station.show more
