The Railway Bridge is always the beginning of our walk and I never fail to be amazed with the bridge engineering. If you come on Monday's and sometimes Friday you may just catch the bridge going up and down to accommodate a train. May wife and I love the site and the walk.

I have to admit to having an overly zealous interest in this bridge that started over 30 years ago when we started coming to the Cape as a family when I was a little girl. A few weeks ago, I finally saw the bridge in action and felt like a little kid, actually I was more excited than my seven... More

We were staying close to the railway bridge and were lucky enough on several occasions to see the bridge go up and down and trains go across. Our grand daughter was with us one time and the train drivers actually came out and waved to her. We never get tired of seeing this. The trains seem to go over at... More

The park in Buzzards Bay fronts on Main St and affords parking at the train bridge next to the canal. You can access the service road for walking or biking. It also offers picnic tables to enjoy a meal with a great view and almost always a cool breeze! Thursday evenings throughout the summer there is free entertainment in the... More

I love to sit under the bridge and wait to see if any trains will go through. My daughter goes to college down the street so it is pretty cool to see when the bridge goes down

We enjoyed visiting the area; as many times as I have crossed the canal, I never stopped to see the bridge up close. No trains crossed that day, but I got some great photos of boats under the bridge.

Now that it's fall, if you go to the canal you're likely to the seals going through. The other day my husband and a friend swear they saw a whale surface! Whales have been known to go through, but usually stay underwater and are very rarely seen. I missed it! I did see a seal the other day and others... More
