Springfield Massachusetts Amtrak Union Station

Springfield, Massachusetts, USA | Virtual Railfan LIVE

Springfield Union Station is a train and bus station in the Metro Center area of Springfield, Massachusetts. Constructed in 1926, Springfield Union Station is the fifth busiest Amtrak station in the Commonwealth, and the busiest outside of Greater Boston.[2]

A large-scale $94 million[3] renovation project restored the former station building, and it reopened in late June 2017 as a regional intermodal transit hub. It features not only Amtrak service, but also serves as the new hub for the Pioneer Valley Transit Authority (PVTA), along with Peter Pan Bus Lines, Greyhound Lines, and the CTrail Hartford Line commuter rail. PVTA and intercity bus services began using the renovated station in 2017, and the Hartford Line opened in June 2018. Amtrak moved from a 1994-built structure to the renovated station in June 2019.

The Steaming Tender Restaurant Web Camera

 7/13/2022 BOTH CAMERAS CURRENT OFFLINE

Reason Why

Both Cameras at this location – were requested by Property owner to be taken off line – not sure why.

  • Location: Palmer, Massachusetts, United States
  • Source: Boston and Maine Live
  • Info: Live streaming webcam showing trains in Massachusetts. The webcam features the train line and Steaming Tender Restaurant at Palmer in Massachusetts, United States.
    Palmer is Milepost 83.2 on CSX’s east-west line from Boston, and MP 64.8 on NECR’s route north from New London.

More info: Architect H.H. Richardson was hired by the Boston and Albany Railroad and the New London Northern Railroad in 1881, to design Union Station in Palmer, Massachusetts. The challenging design had to serve both lines as well as replacing the existing stations. It was built by the Flynt Construction Company and built of granite from Flynt’s quarry. The grounds of the Palmer railroad station were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted who is best known for designing Central Park in New York City.

Palmer’s Union Station was opened to the public on June 1, 1884. The railroad station reached its peak of activity in the early 1900’s. At that time approximately 30 to 40 trains stopped daily at the elegant station.

Passenger rail traffic steadily declined after World War II, with an increase in the use of cars for short trips and air transport for long distance journeys and as a result many small-town stations had closed by the 1950s. Palmer remained a stop on the Penn Central Railroad until 1971, when Amtrak absorbed all U.S. passenger rail service and closed Palmer’s station.

The only major difference today from the original station is the missing covered platform that was on the Boston & Albany side of the building. Otherwise, the rest of the station still reflects its 19th century appearance. The building is now home to the Steaming Tender restaurant and the railroad-themed restaurant attracts a lot of visitors including railroad enthusiasts.

Today, Palmer is still a major railroad hub, although now it is exclusively freight trains that stop there. The old Boston & Albany line is now operated by CSX, one of the largest railroads in the country. CSX has around 20 freight trains and 4 Amtraks passing through daily. The Central Vermont is now operated by the New England Central Railroad, whose southern division offices are still in Palmer. A third railroad, the Massachusetts Central Railroad, also operates out of Palmer.

Description

Steel & concrete viaduct that carried the former B&A mainline through downtown Westfield. The southern two spans appear to be a steel stringer/deck plate girder construction encased in concrete for the purposes of having a solid floor. The northernmost span was a through plate girder span carrying a loading platform for the adjacent railroad station. After being the site of numerous truck strikes, the bridge was replaced with a taller structure in 2008-10 as part of a major road improvement project in this area. webcamera is location is on top of The Pilgrim Candle Building looking toweds Westfield Railroad station (Now
