BRATTLEBORO — Advocates for expanded rail travel to Brattleboro and eventually to Montreal will be watching closely a two-and-a-half year program running two trains a day from Springfield, Mass. to Greenfield, Mass.

The commonwealth of Massachusetts inked an agreement last year with Connecticut and Amtrak to provide two extended daily trains from Springfield with stops in Holyoke, Northampton and Greenfield. With that service, rail travelers will be able to board a train in Greenfield and be in New York City in a little more than four hours. One train will run in the morning and one later in the day in both directions, meaning travelers could conceivably travel to the city in the morning and be home that same night.
