View as Map

Welcome back to Train in Vain, Curbed Boston's feature on homes for sale along the region's commuter rail and outer reaches of the T. We're in Salem this go-round because none other than The New York Times recently noted it as a Plan B for Hub dwellers priced out of downtown Boston. What'd we find? A formidable collection of sizable houses and townhouses, ranging in price from more than $1.4M to under $450K. Boo.
