Amtrak's Northeast Regional, Lake Shore Limited and Vermonter trains returned to Union Station in Springfield, Massachusetts, yesterday after previously using a temporary stop as part of a station upgrade project.

Riders traveling in western Massachusetts will now see passenger information display boards, hear train announcements in the station and access a customer service desk that will be staffed from 5 a.m. to 12 p.m. daily, Amtrak officials said in a press release.

"Whether you are getting on, off, just traveling through or even working there, everyone loves seeing a beautiful, refurbished train station with modern amenities that also has a long-standing significance to the city and its people," said Tom Moritz, Amtrak's associate vice president of infrastructure access and investment.

Springfield Union Station also serves the CTrail New Haven-Hartford-Springfield line and various bus routes. A larger project aimed at refurbishing the historic station was completed in June 2017.
