Doesn't include the Boston section of the Lake Shore Limited. Including the Lake Shore this would be 5 round trips Springfield - Boston. 3 round trips Albany - Boston.
Does one not include the Lake Shore? So one additional service? Would be nice to extend a NE Regional (no mentions of CTDOT re Hartford Line extension, another option)
And same for phase 2 and Albany-Boston, would it be two net new services? Might they run on anywhere?
Second up will be two unique, new Albany-Boston round trips, which (+LSL) will equate to 5 tpd from Springfield to Boston.
I wonder if the Albany-Bostons could be a Berkshire Flyer - I can definitely see potential there but it's too niche right now. And Chatham reopening would be interesting too.
