Fodor's Review

The old Boston & Maine Railroad yard is the site of this park whose visitor center's exhibits trace the impact of train travel on the region. A 30-minute film documents the intense labor required to construct the nearby Hoosac Tunnel. One block from the park, a pedestrian bridge affords a good view of tracks as they disappear into the tunnel.
