Empire Corridor to speed up

Rensselaer, NY – Trains along New York State's Empire Corridor-the Amtrak rail line connecting the state's major cities between New York, Albany and Buffalo-could speed up in the next twenty years. Proposals to improve New York's rail system are closer to reality and the Capital Region could enhance its reputation as a major transit hub as a result.

WAMC's Capital District Bureau Chief Jessica Bloustein reports.
