A whale’s spout can be seen up to a mile away. The multi-modal station incorporates a spout to demarcate the pending departure or arrival of a train. This spout becomes a part of the New Bedford landscape as a visual marker and is interconnected with the operation of the site/building, such as the stormwater infiltration system .
