The newly completed and handicapped-accessible Platform C at Springfield Union Station is the next step toward potentially reestablishing frequent passenger rail service between Springfield and Boston, Gov. Charlie Baker said Friday. Baker joined longtime Union Station booster U.S. Rep. Richard E. Neal, D-Springfield, and Mayor Domenic J. Sarno for a ceremonial ribbon cutting at the $11 million platform.
