Some cities in America have very good railway public transit. However, it's more city-wide instead of country-wide.

HOLYOKE -- Passenger train service was welcomed back to Holyoke Thursday (Aug. 27) after 50 years.

"There is no doubt that Holyoke is on the map. We've been on the map, and today, even more so," Mayor Alex B. Morse said.

State and local officials cut the ceremonial ribbon to open the new, $4.3 million Holyoke Passenger Rail Platform at Depot Square, Main and Dwight streets, where Amtrak will make two stops a day -- one northbound, one southbound.

The schedule for the Amtrak Vermonter coming through Holyoke is for a daily southbound train to arrive at 1:45 p.m. and a daily northbound train to pull in at 3:49 p.m., including weekends, officials said.

The first train pulled in with whistles sounding at 1:55 p.m., a silver and glass tube sliding down the tracks as the Monkees' "The Last Train to Clarksville" played on a radio nearby.

Study proposes routes for Tucson-Phoenix rail line

September 07, 2015 12:00 pm • By Patrick McNamara

The Arizona Department of Transportation has completed the first draft of an environmental assessment that studies the proposed route of a passenger rail line between Tucson and Phoenix.

The document is an early step in a process that could take years to complete even before construction is to start.

The proposed rail line would run from Tucson International Airport to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, with extensions to Goodyear and Surprise in the Phoenix area.

The ADOT report looks at the potential environmental impact, the need for passenger rail, the affects on transportation, cost analysis and other aspects of building the railway.

The study notes the potential costs of construction for the rail line range from $4.5 billion to $7.5 billion.

Annual operations and maintenance costs also vary from $66.8 million to $85.9 million.

Hickory Creek enters Empire Tunnel




Quote:
08/25/15 As Amtrak's Lake Shore Limited approaches Penn Station around 6:30 pm you can see us pass under the streets of Hell's Kitchen. Eventually you see sections of third rail appear and the extra track merge as overhead wires appear. Only when the engine passes the crossing does it engage the third rail shoes and go electric. At some point we end up stopping and waiting for 10 minutes till a track opened up at Penn.
