Big Money For Local Railroad

Federal funding is coming for a  railroad that runs through Western Massachusetts. 

 Senator Ed Markey's  office announced on Monday that nearly eleven-million dollars is being  granted to update the infrastructure of the New England Central  Railroad. 

 That money, combined with about 20-million in state funding  and from the railroad itself, is expected to go specifically towards  modernizing the line to catch it up with the rest of the route in three  other states; Vermont, New Hampshire and Connecticut.
