Photo of Watertown line at Newton Corner
Watertown line at Newton Corner

An inbound PCC from Watertown approaches the stop at Newton Corner on its way to Park Street. Following construction of the Mass Pike in the early 60s, streetcars had to negotiate several hundred feet of wrong-side street running against auto traffic as they crossed the Pike bridge, which was one of the factors that sped this line's bustitution.
