Traffic and Parking Impacts
Have any old photos that shows the narrow-gauge when it ran along Winthrop Beach in the Highlands, like the photo on the left? We are planning a plaque in the restored Highland Park to commemorate the Boston Revere Beach & Lynn Railroad, which looped through Winthrop until the 1940s.
If anyone has an old photograph that shows the railroad or a train passing here, we would like to consider using it! Please drop by James Caputo at the DCR trailer on Shore Drive or call him at 617-846-1489. Thank you!
Questions or concerns during construction, please see DCR Resident Engineer Jim Caputo, reachable by phone or at the trailer located at the Winthrop Beach Bathhouse on Mermaid Ave, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
