Was caught by surprise @ 5:30 this morning when the Damon Rd Northampton gates lowered for a northbound Amtrak. It had one P42 & 2 amfleets. Did the Greenfield service start, or was this something else?
The trains are running without passengers until Friday.

Re: Amtrak NEC Inland, Springfield Shuttle/Regional/Greenfield Route

Amtrak did not make the schedules, MassDOT did based off the current SPG-NHV schedule. MassDOT then gave Amtrak the trains they wanted to run up to Greenfield and basically said make it work. Pan Am has been less than enthused to have the extra moves up to Greenfield. Anyway, the trains start runnin...

Re: Amtrak Springfield Line Shuttle/Regional/Greenfield/Inla

The launch of the shuttle extensions to Greenfield has been pushed back to late Summer/early Fall. Some work needs to be done before the trains can start.

Re: Amtrak Springfield Line Shuttle/Regional/Greenfield/Inla

Two round trips daily: one a.m. one p.m. Extended shuttles: any idea which two? I’m thinking 495/490 as 495 still makes Hartford before 8 and 490 is the first NB. 451 is too early. Afternoon I’m thinking 475/476. Thoughts? The present plan is for 495 and 471 in the morning and 494 and 478 in the ev...

Re: Amtrak Springfield Line Shuttle/Regional/Greenfield/Inla

There is a washout from todays heavy rain combined with the snow melt with temperatures in the mid-50's today. 148 will be terminated in New Haven. One shuttle will run to Windsor Locks as 478. Two shuttles are stranded in Springfield, one of which is sick. 141 will originate in New Haven tomorrow. ...

No, 473 has the test train equipment due to issues with the CDOT set assigned to Springfield.

Re: Amtrak Springfield Line: Greenfield/Boston B&A Shuttle S

There are currently no plans to extend Track to from WOOD to the north end of the Parkville Industrial Track. It was part of the original plan but has since been scrapped. Maybe once the state figures out what they want to do with I-84, they'll do something but as of now Amtrak and CDOT are focused ...

For what it's worth, ACSES is being considered for the Conn River between Springfield and Greenfield.

Re: Planned Springfield-Greenfield service

I think MassDOT's plan was to extend 495 and 478 to Greenfield but it has probably changed a dozen times since I started typing.
