Good news from my home state. We have not read about or heard from CSX on this whole proposal, have we? It's been a long-stated goal to put back a second main track between Springfield and Worcester where there isn't one now. I don't see how the railroad could be opposed to that, especially given the low amount of traffic running on the B&A these days.
Interesting to note that money has been approved for the project, but none of the alternatives proposed has been chosen. Also, a repeat of federal funding needed in big amounts to make this happen. I think that that is a function of which alternative is chosen.
