Somewhere on the B&A?

I took this photo in the early 60's, likely somewhere on the Boston and Albany, probably in the Framingham area. Any guesses? I can't believe I stood where I stood to get the pix-I was not used to fast and frequent trains.

Photographed by H.Brown, 1961.

It looks like around Southboro or Westboro. That style of station design was common in that area.
Ashland and Framingham stations come to mind.

I believe that may be the original Southboro station. The original Framingham and Ashland stations are red stone buildings still standing.

Pretty sure it's not the Westborough depot, which still stands and of which old and current pictures are available on line.

This looks quite a bit like the B&A depot at Millbury MA - but I think that would have been at the end of the B&A Millbury branch and not on the mainline as this appears to be. I don't think it's the Southville depot (ie B&A depot for Southborough). Here's a link for MA RR depots "Gone from their original sites":

On 1960s railfan visits to Ashland, we strayed a bit west to a north side station hulk, we referred to as Cordaville.
