9:00 minutes into the movie, the station depicted in School Ties is without question NOT the West Groton, MA depot. Is this the scene you are referring to?arthur d. wrote:No I'm not. Watch the movie.
The station in the film does look like Leominster on the Agricultural to me. The West Groton depot has been gone for a very long time and wasn't much of a structure to begin with. See photo. West Groton is still rural today. Incidentally, I remember School Ties being filmed at Middlesex School in 1992, quite a few friends of mine got hired as extras. Apparently at age 14 I couldn't be bothered..
We're both wrong. Its the Clover farms store just across the road from the station site in W. Groton. It appears around 7:32, wearing a sign that reads "Cabot Mass." note too the crossbuck. As long as I can remember, it has worn a W. Groton station sign, thus my confusion. Also check the location credits at imdb.com. Quite a list of locations in Massachusetts, among them West Groton..
