West Cambridge Maintenace Facility (WCMF) is where various pieces of MoW equipment is repaired and stored. It's main shops for the engineering department work equipment fleet. There are smaller shops that are satellite shop to WCMF and they're in Abington, Readville, Worcester, Fitchburg and Salem.
