Fresh Pond Road

Fresh Pound Road was a grade level station and interchange with trolley lines.

A new incline was built at Fresh Pond Road to the existing surface ROW and has remained as such since 1915.

This is how the station appeared in 1914

Construction of the El Structure at Freshpond Road
Gate car El coming into Metropolitan Ave
The first time I rode on the line in 1956. It was my first Time Traveling experience as I watched in awe as a train of gate cars pulled into the station. Then, the conductor opened the gates. The passengers departed the train. Then, I stepped onto the open platform of the car gazing at the wrought iron railings and looked down at the link and pin type (Tomilson) coupler trying to absorb as much of this experience as I could in a couple of seconds before the conductor closed the gate and the train moved out of the station for a most enjoyable trip to the end of the line.
