Chapter 11: Boston to Newburyport



Up and at ‘em again in the morning, when after some caffeination (if only one could find a Dunkin’ in this burg) I took the T’s Orange Line to North Station.


MBTA Train 147

Boston, MA (North Stn) to Newburyport, MA

Fare: $12.25

Cumulative Fare: $138.48


This train had mostly single-level cars with one or two bi-levels. (Apparently this type of mixed-car consist is fairly common to MBTA’s regional rail.) Our fairly empty train left two minutes late - no big deal.

We got to Newburyport 1-2 minutes early and walked down the length of the train, by the diesel locomotive.
