      A State Senator from western Massachusetts is in the middle of a tour today intended to highlight support for expanding passenger rail service between Springfield and Boston.

        State Senator Eric Lesser of Longmeadow started his whistle-stop tour at Boston’s South Station this morning. 

       Just before he hopped on a train to go to the next stop, Lesser spoke with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill.
