This 2-minute preview comes from our work-in-progress, a film about passenger rail revival in 21st-century America. Hear from Deval Patrick, Governor of Massachusetts 2007-2015, Eric Lesser, Massachusetts State Senator, and Richard Neal, US Congressman, Massachusetts 1st District in these clips.

The Train Campaign, bringing back the trains!

We’re engaging communities throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York with a vision for robust 21st-century passenger rail systems.  Our aim is to connect western Massachusetts and Connecticut to New York City with regional infrastructure for a sustainable future.
