Mile 3.3: West Arlington, Rhode Island
A section of the 15 Minute Providence, MA(sp) USGS quadrangle highlighting suburban Providence Stations

There aren't many clues today that the bridge at Burnham Ave was once a station stop, but the milage from River Point (MP11) suggests that this was the site of the West Arlington Station.

This section also has a nice underpass, which goes under Gansett Ave.
