Thomas F Travis Hi, do you have any photographs of the New Haven Railroad’s Consolidated Electric Trains. They operated between Bowenville Depot, Fall River, MA and Union Station Providence. My dad use to take this train in the late 1920s. Service was discontinued in 1931, when the Tanker “Hagan” Struck the Slades Ferry Bridge in Fall River. The bridge was out of commission for a number of years. My dad mentioned a siding in East Providence at Fox Point. He said people caught steamers there for New York City.
