Fitchburg/South Acton Line: Current

Schedule changes on Fitchburg/South Acton Line effective Mon Aug 4. Click on the link to view the schedules.


Until end of day Mon 8/4/14

The schedule changes are being made because of track and signal improvements that have been ongoing since last year and will continue through next year. As part of that improvement process, 3 bridges will be replaced in Concord area beginning Monday, August 4th creating a single track operation between Lincoln and to Littleton/Route 495.

An enhancement to the Fitchburg Line service in the new schedules is that the trains that were terminating and originating at and from South Acton have been extended to Littleton/Route 495.
