Excerpt from Wikipedia: "On March 21, 1980, the Massachusetts Legislature directed the MBTA to rename the Needham Line's [Birds Hill] station to honor Needham selectman Henry D. Hersey, "an outstanding spokesman for commuter rail service in the commonwealth". In addition to this station, the MBTA also honored Hersey by naming locomotive MBTA 1000 as Henry D. Hersey "Mr. Commuter Rail".
