Empire Corridor

I just ran across this Aug. 20th MassTransitMag industry announcement. This fall, the NYSDOT will be running comprehensive software simulations of the Empire Corridor West, which is the rail line connecting Rensselaer to Niagara Falls, NY.

This simulation will model all passenger and freight traffic in the corridor. This will allow a way to assess the feasibility of various infrastructure improvements. Funding for the study comes from the NYS Senate Task Force on High Speed Rail.
