The 2nd to last station on the line before going into Mattapan, Capen St. is an unassuming station in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Let’s look at it, shall we?
There’s not a lot to it. You got a shelter on the Ashmont platform, benches, wastebaskets, and mini-highs. Yeah, not a lot here. However, the grade crossing (one of a kind on the T!) does make for some pretty cool railfanning shots, particularly when it’s warmer and the area is more leafy. Neat!
The good: It’s in an unassuming neighborhood! Furthermore, it’s nice and quiet, and overall really isn’t that terrible a place to wait.
The bad: The lack of shelter on the Mattapan platform kinda sucks!
Nearby points of interest: There’s a park!
Transit connections: Mattapan Line
Overall, I like this station, pretty much for how quiet it is. Yeah, I don’t have much to say. It’s just decent. Just please give it an outbound shelter!
