HARTFORD, Conn. – Gov. Dannel P. Malloy toured an Enfield site Thursday where community organizers are hoping to build a commuter train station on the planned rail line between New Haven and Springfield.

State transportation officials believe the commuter rail line will be up and running by the end of 2016 and are considering locations to add passenger stations. Community organizers in the Thompsonville section of Enfield have purchased property along the Amtrak line and are lobbying the state to approve the site for a commuter stop.

Malloy did not commit to approving the location as a future train stop, but he said the state has already invested $550,000 in its renovation. He said the Transportation Department will continue to evaluate the Enfield site and other locations.
