Dates:6/1/1983 - 2/9/2006
Album Info:In the summer of 1983 Conrail removed the diamonds in framingham and installed turnout switches. This project started on the weekend into late sunday-monday morning. At this time one power switch was installed and that was mainline track #2 to the Framingham Secondary. This track was also realligned across RT 135. All these workers worked non-stop,so much for saftey.
