Ever wonder where the name Charlie Card came from? Look no further than the 1949 Song, Charlie on the MTA.

MassDOT Completes Acquisition of Framingham Secondary Rail Line
6/17/2015

BOSTON - Today, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation announced it had completed the acquisition of the Framingham Secondary Rail Line, a 21-mile segment of rail that connects Framingham and Mansfield. The line was purchased from CSX Corporation for $23 million.

Purchase of the Framingham Secondary is a strategic investment that links the Framingham/Worcester, Needham, Franklin, and the Attleboro/Northeast Corridor commuter rail lines together. The Framingham Secondary Line is also a major rail corridor for the shipment of freight between several key points in eastern Massachusetts, including Readville, Milford, Franklin, Fall River, and New Bedford, as well as Worcester. The line is also used for passenger service to and from Patriots home games at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. For the purposes of planning for long-term infrastructure needs, purchase of the line provides added rail capacity that allows for passenger service to travel on alternative routes in cases where capital projects may disrupt normal service

Is there any long-term plans for electrification of the commuter rail or replacing diesel-freight trains with DMUs?

There have some proposals for Electrifying the South Station lines and some starter DMUs for the Fairmount Line.
