SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A comprehensive feasibility study into East/West rail service between Springfield and Boston is back on track.

Rail service advocate, State Senator Eric Lesser of Longmeadow will make what’s described as a major announcement, in front of Union station Monday afternoon.

Lesser, longtime advocate of such a study, is expected to disclose that he’ll be a key player in that study at the request of Massachusetts Transportation Secretary Stephanie Pollack.
