The Franklin Line of MBTA Commuter Rail travels in a northeasterly direction toward Boston, Massachusetts from Franklin, Massachusetts. Its stops include (in inbound order): Forge Park/495, Dean College/Franklin, Norfolk, Walpole, Plimptonville, Windsor Gardens, Norwood Central, Norwood Depot, Islington, Dedham Corporate Center, Endicott, Readville, Hyde Park, Ruggles, Back Bay and South Station. Most weekday trains do not stop at Hyde Park or Plimptonville, and no trains stop at these stations on weekends.

The Franklin line was later extended to Forge Park/495 but the MBTA decided to keep the name of the line the same. The line is sometimes referred as the Franklin/Forge Park line.
