Outcry halts MBTA’s plans to sell Stoughton railroad station
The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority recently put a 130-year-old railroad station in downtown Stoughton up for sale, much to the surprise of local officials. The process has been temporarily halted, thanks to some help from state legislators representing the town, but the fate of the granite station remains uncertain. The town has been interested in owning the station for some time, but what it should be charged for the purchase is a point of debate. The price tag is $350,000.
