Bird's Hill station.

Because the station at Needham Heights was a dead end, Needham Branch coach train operations entailed a lot of reverse moves, (piping), between there and the wye at Needham Junction. This made the line "user friendly" to trains, headed by a single cab unit. By 1959 two 0700s were assigned to trains, which laid over at the Junction. Out and back runs, originating in Boston, could be headed by anything available, including PAs, C-Liners and even FAs in warm weather. The Needham Branch would see the last runs of the 0700 class, DL-109s.
