That train has left the station

The Beacon Park rail yards next the Mass. Pike in Allston are now unused and empty, as shown in this photo. Harvard owns the 91 acres that are occupied by the pike and the rail tracks, which they refer to as “Allston Landing South,” but would need state approval for any development, according to the Crimson article.
