Springfield, Mass., station

Amtrak’s station at Springfield, Mass., had six tracks in this early 1990s view. Regular trains to and from Boston and Washington, plus the Boston section of the Lake Shore Limited, stopped at the station. The elevated structures are baggage elevators used for handling mail and express in pre-Amtrak days. Located on New York Central’s Boston & Albany main line, the station was also used by trains of the New Haven and Boston & Maine.
