OTOL Boston RailFest 2023 Homepage

Main Fest: Saturday & Sunday, April 22 & 23, 2023

Foxboro trips: Friday, April 21 and/or Monday, April 24, 2023

Created 12/18/16; Updated 3/1/23

This is the FEST that was postponed in 2020 due to Coronavirus. Rescheduled 3 years later.

OTOL Boston RailFest 2023 will be another visit to the Boston area.

The goals of the 54th Fest I've handled are to ride the Downeaster in its entirety to Brunswick, ME and to ride the outermost segment of MBTA commuter rail Fitchburg Line out to Wachusett. I also chose a re-ride of the Fairmount Line, a relatively short commuter rail line that has seen upgrades in recent years. We can also ride the newly opened Green Line Extension (GLX) to both Somerville and Medford. Finally, since there is once again commuter rail service to Foxboro, an option to travel there on Friday or Monday has been added.
