As for taxes, they have never paid taxes in EB.Hmmmm.. Whereas the North Brookfield RR was apparently (and may still be) 90% owned by North Brookfield and leased to the Boston and Albany and therefore successors, I suspect this may be obfuscating research on this. This may explain the lack of any tax payment in East Brookfield. Note the word MAY. Methinks there's more information out there and it is just a matter of finding it to get the whole picture one way or the other.
Regarding any tax lien, I strongly suggest citing a source there ("C. Y. A."). Otherwise you might be inviting a libel action.
