End of the Watertown Branch

In 1960 the Watertown Branch was abandoned through the center of Waterown leaving two stubs both connecting to the Fitchburg route, one at Fresh Pond and the other at Waltham.
There was still enough traffic on the east end to justify this B&M S-5 #1280 to go to the EOT around Irving St. crossing. The entire branch was abandoned in 2011
