More storm clouds on Readville's horizon with the ex-Stop and Shop distribution center where Abex resides now targeted for re-development into housing. This would join re-development pressure for Widett Circle where Americold is located and re-development of Foxboro Terminals and the Westwood/Rt 128 Industrial Park.

Wait, the Americold you guys are referring to is in South Boston, meaning CSX travels down the Fairmount Line?

Therer is an Americold in Taunton, not sure if it is railed , could be the new and improved center , as things change . I remember the swinging beef came into Southampton street, all gone now as logistics shifted .

Yes. I recall I used to see it come into Boston around 5 PM in the evening in the 80's. I used to work in Widett Circle. Don't know the present operation.
