    6. Mobility means more vigor for state’s gateway cities - The Boston Globe

      Springfield’s Union Station has been boarded up for 38 years, but a planned refurbishing of the building as a commuter rail, Amtrak, and regional bus center could dramatically increase the possibilities for that city. The $70 million project — which is still at least $20 million short in financing — would turn the city into a hub for high-speed rail service between Vermont and New York. With 28 trips through that “knowledge corridor’’ every day, under a $121 million expansion funded through President Obama’s rail initiative, Springfield would suddenly become a lower-cost alternative for office work that might otherwise be ...

    10. Cooperation on rail plans wins praise - MassLive.com

      U.S. Rep. Richard E. Neal, D-Springfield, said the inclusion of money for high speed rail projects in the stimulus funding that was proposed to jumpstart the economy is an example of an opportunity coming at a time of economic downturn that must not be neglected. Springfield Mayor Domenic J. Sarno said improved rail travel in the Northeast can help revitalize the inner cores of older cities, which in turn will make these urban centers more attractive places for jobs and good housing.

    11. Canadian officials want to be aboard if high-speed rail takes off in Northeast

      Amtrak’s long-term vision dovetails with President Obama’s interest in high-speed rail as a 21st-century answer to the Eisenhower-era interstate system. Obama touched on the subject in his last State of the Union address and released $8 billion in federal stimulus dollars for rail that same month. Part of those stimulus funds provided a down payment on true high-speed rail lines and part funded not-quite-as-fast-but-shovel-ready connections between cities, including a rerouting of Amtrak’s Vermonter line (New York City to St. Albans, Vt.) over a faster, more direct route through Western Massachusetts.
