Today I will take a look at the Worcester Union Station complex including both CSX, MBTA and P&W services. You can find the full set of photos here
Worcester Union Station was built in 1911 by the New York Central railroad with the Providence and Worcester and New Haven being other important tenants.
The main hall can be reserved for events like this wedding that was underway behind the white curtain.
Just south of the station, Conrail established an intermodal terminal on its Boston Line. Today the terminal is operated by CSX and I found AC4400 #439 idling ahead of a cut of doublestacks.
At the western end of the station platform are the signals for Boston Line interlocking CP-45. The 'C' lamps are for the Rule 562 cab-signal only operation which is in place between Framingham and CP-187.
When I got up to the platform level it started to rain, slightly degrading this shot of SRS Doodlebug #125 that was hanging out west of the station.
Behind it was CSX ES44AC-H #736.
Part of the B&A platform was raised when MBTA service was extended. The P&W platform is now used for outdoor restaurant seating.
CSX AC4400 #439 was occasionally making some odd chugging noises.
The old platform and Amtrak station is still in place and perhaps still used by longer MBTA trains.
Hanging out in the ready yard were three generations of MBTA power. Oldest was F40PH-2C #1029.
On the adjacent track was GP40MC #1122.
And finally brand new HSP-46 #2032 was on the far track.
