History[edit]

The New Haven Railroad abandoned its remaining Old Colony Division lines on June 30, 1959, after the completion of the Southeast Expressway.[1] The East Weymouth station had been located off Station Street.[3]

The MBTA reopened the Greenbush Line on October 31, 2007, with East Weymouth station off Commercial Street, east of the former location.[1]
