Oh…well, that’s what I get for complaining about Ballardvale. North Wilmington proves that things can always get worse.

See that raised bit over there? That’s the platform.

So yeah…what have we here? There’s a section with a Haverhill Line schedule, a wastebasket, and some newspaper boxes, but it’s not actually part of the platform. The platform is just a tiny strip of asphalt less than a car length long, and all it has on it are an awful bike rack and a bus shelter. And…I think that’s it. Wait, this station has 20 free parking spaces? Where???


Station: North Wilmington

Ridership: This stop gets 310 inbound people per day??? That’s not that many, but it’s a lot for the Haverhill Line! Also, can you imagine rush hour crowds at the tiny platform? Geez!

Pros: Sigh…free parking is nice…

Cons: There’s not much explanation necessary here. Tiny platform, bus shelter, no amenities. Capiche?

Nearby and Noteworthy: There are some suburban businesses around here, mostly in the form of pizza joints and cafés. There’s also an RMV, so I guess that’s nice…?

Final Verdict: 1/10
Blechhhhhh. Echhhhhhh. Blehhhhhhhh. 1/10.
