Berkshire Regional Planning Commission has completed a study about station locations. In today’s world stations need to provide easy access to trains using high-level platforms and good parking. Each town has its own views of where stations should be and each town may have a different approach. Some of those approaches could involve using an existing station that is in private hands, while others may involve building a new station that fits in with a town’s development plans. There may well be circumstances where stations are privately operated, providing public train services complemented by private businesses.
