Stations

Stations would be established at important points along the route — exactly where has yet to be determined.

Amherst

Amtrak Station facilities already exist at Brattleboro, Amherst, Willimantic and New London. Station Buildings (but no platforms) exist at Palmer and Mansfield.

The Central Corridor runs through the campus of the Mohegan Sun resort and casino and Amherst College, Connecticut College and the Coast Guard Academy in New London.

Historic Railroad timetables before local service was discontinued show the following passenger and freight stations (Where stops would be located today has not been determined):

    I was wondering if all the stations will be upgraded to ADA requirements? Trains should be new US Railcar DMUs, and Station platforms upgraded to High Level.

    How frequently is service proposed to run every day? What rail company will operate the service?
