Plymouth is a passenger rail station on MBTA Commuter Rail's Plymouth/Kingston Line. The station is located in Plymouth, Massachusetts, in the Cordage Park complex of North Plymouth. Plymouth is one terminus of the MBTA's Kingston/Plymouth Line, along with Kingston station in nearby Kingston, Massachusetts. The Plymouth station provides non-peak and occasional peak along with the Kingston station service to Braintree and as far north as Boston's South Station. Most trains on the line serve only Kingston station; service to and ridership from Plymouth are thus very limited.
A previous station was located at Boundary Lane on the Plymouth/Kingston border, just north of the current site. Built as North Plymouth in 1873, it was renamed to Seaside around 1880 and Cordage in 1925. The station closed with the rest of the Old Colony Division on June 30, 1959.
The rest of the Plymouth/Kingston Line and the Middleborough/Lakeville Line opened for rush hour service on September 29, 1997. Plymouth, with no rush hour trains, did not open until midday and weekend service began on November 29, 1997.
Prior to the return of weekend service on the Kingston/Plymouth Line, the MBTA held special weekend service to Plymouth for 2 weekends leading up to the 2014 Thanksgiving holiday. The two trains per day were intended only for tourists going to Plymouth; they did not run on schedules allowing day trips to Boston.
