The old New York, New Haven and Hartford is only memory now, for those old enough to remember, but we have a lot to look forward to in the New Haven-Hartford-Springfield rail service, which will provide Western Massachusetts and Connecticut with improved rail service and expanded connections...and at speeds of up to 110mph, cutting travel time between Springfield and New Haven to 73 minutes. Oh, to get off I-91 and get on the train.
NHHS service will provide direct or connecting service to New York City, Boston, and Vermont. For more on the New Haven, Hartford & Springfield, have a look here.
