Cruce Becker will be joined by others to talk about the things that are making ESPA members anxious and the things that are giving them hope. On the plus side, ESPA has seen the opening of two new stations in the last year–Exchange Street Station in Buffalo and the Moynihan Train Hall in NYC; completion of a second main between Albany and Schenectady; formation of a Lake Shore Working group looking to expand service; and hiring of a part-time executive director. On the minus side, they have been waiting nearly 12 years for a final report on the Empire Corridor study, hoping it won’t meet the same fate as the Chicago-Detroit/Pontiac Corridor study. More immediately, ESPA hopes to restore food service on the Empire State Corridor train and is working to get pre-clearance at Montreal and to extend the Ethan Allen from Rutland to Burlington VT.
