Stoughton is a railroad station on the MBTA Commuter Rail's Providence/Stoughton Line located in Stoughton, Massachusetts. It is the terminus of the Stoughton Branch of the Providence/Stoughton Line. The station has 333 parking spaces to serve local riders and those driving from further south, as Stoughton is close to the Massachusetts Route 24 expressway. Stoughton currently has one platform (split across Wyman Street) serving one track; the platform has a mini-high section for handicapped accessibility.
Stoughton station is planned to be reconstructed as part of the South Coast Rail project, which will extend the Stoughton Branch south to several South Coast cities. A second track will be added through the station to support increased bidrectional service; the two new platforms will be located fully south of Wyman Street so that trains do not block the crossing.
Because of the sharp curve, full-length high-level platforms were originally thought not to be feasible; instead, each platform was to have a 45-foot-long mini-high platform at the southern end.
Under newer plans, the tracks will be moved slightly west south of Wyman Street, so that full-length high-level platforms will be built a block south at Brock Street, connected with an overhead pedestrian bridge. A new parking area with nearly twice the number of spaces will be built; the old right-of-way and parking areas will be redeveloped.
