The former Pocassett station around 1920
|Location||Barlows Landing Road, Pocasset, Massachusetts|
|Line(s)||New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad|
The original Pocasset station was built by the Cape Cod Railroad around 1872. It was taken out of service in 1906 and moved to Cataumet. In 1906, the Wenaumet station - which was located about a mile north of the original station - was renamed as the Pocasset station by the New Haven Railroad. This station burned to the ground on May 14, 1914.
A new station was built at the same location in 1915. It was later demolished in 1960 after the New Haven Railroad discontinued most passenger service to Cape Cod. Remnants of the station's original foundation and platform are still visible just south of the point where Barlows Landing Road crosses the train tracks.
