Signal Tower A, near North Station, Boston

Signal Tower A, Boston

I’m in the Boston area for my dad’s 90th birthday. While taking the train out to South Acton from Boston, I took this photo of the old Boston and Maine Railroad Signal Tower A near North Station. At right, you can see the nose of MBTA locomotive 1138 — one of the T’s many EMD GP40s — pulling a commuter train out from North Station, probably headed to Rockport (the Rockport train departed at the same time as the South Acton train).

  1. I viewed this tower just the other day while on the train leaving the station. I thought to look it up and add a pic that I took for my blog. There is history all around us, is all.
