I haven't been there in a while, and freight schedules are notoriously irregular; but they (Fore River) generally make a turn to/from Braintree Yard mid-day. CSX no longer goes to Braintree. AFAIK the shipyard is private property. There are a few public grade crossings on the Fore River itself, and Commercial St. crosses the Greenbush at, ironically enough, Shipyard Interlocking. This is where the Fore River meets the Greenbush. There are no good spots to see the move once it gets on the Greenbush, though you might be able to see something at the north end of Braintree commuter rail platform.

How often does FRVT switch out Braintree Yard? Does CSX ever go to Braintree Yard?
