Great picture on the unique viaduct, which opened in 1835:

Wow thanks for the info. I took a lot of shots of it back in 1973 while visiting relatives in Waltham.

That's a classy picture of a classic viaduct.  It was built in 1835 when trains were horse-drawn stage coaches on rails, and it now carries Acela trains.  Gerry
