Nantasket Junction. Old Colony. Let’s go.

This is about all you need to see.

It’s a single track, so it’s just one platform. There are benches along the whole thing, but there’s a higher concentration of them (plus wastebaskets) under the shelter. The station has 495 parking spaces for cars and a few bike spaces. It has entrances going both east and west: one to Summer Street, and a pedestrian-only one to Kilby Street.


Station: Nantasket Junction

Ridership: This station gets very average Greenbush Line ridership: 381 inbound riders per weekday.

Pros: It has all that sweet Old Colony stuff: a high-level platform, shelter, historical information on the signs, multiple entrances, and a big ol’ parking lot.

Cons: There are level crossings on both sides of the station, so no matter what, incoming trains will set one of them off. Also, it’s a little boring, but that’s no surprise.

Nearby and Noteworthy: The South Shore Model Railway Club and Museum left flyers on every car here advertising their open house…but they’re way closer to West Hingham! Oh well…yeah, there’s nothing around here.

Final Verdict: 7/10
Yup…it’s what you would expect.
