Alewife? IMHO I don't think so. Alewife is an island platform. And this clearly looks like two side platforms. Plus, the plastered arches painted cream, the floor tiles and the lighting tubes all fit perfectly at Central. See below:

First time here, and let me try to put closure to this latest guessing game...

I took the cue from the Massachusetts Avenue sign, which I looked for its reference on Google Maps, and saw that there's actually a station running under it in nearby Cambridge. The station we've been looking for would be called Central Square Station on the T Red Line. I've compared that to nearby station along Mass Ave., including Harvard Square and Porter Square, and it seems that my guess would be the best one. What do you think?

So for my first contribution, guess this station... from San Francisco:

Oh ok... But you never know which one since the region is pretty large.

And btw, you're correct (24th Street/Mission BART). Maybe I should do more of this...

That's correct. That's from the Caltrain side though.
