With President Biden proposing large new investments in rail service, Amtrak has come out with a map that shows new rail service west to Albany and north to Manchester, NH by 2035.
Amtrak released no details on just how much it would be willing to invest in the new services - although technically, there already is train service to upstate New York via a once-daily train to Chicago - or whether it's talked to anybody in Massachusetts, New York and New Hampshire about them.
Massachusetts has ploddingly been looking at middling-speed train service to Pittsfield for what seems like forever.
In New Hampshire, Gov. Sununu keeps changing his mind on whether restoring commuter-rail service into Boston would be a "boondoggle" or a worthwhile investment.
