     History
    The tunnel saw its first train on June 2, 1903, and serviced the Central Massachusetts Railroad from Boston's North Station to Northampton. Freight and passenger service started to decline by 1958, and parts of the line in western and central Massachusetts never saw a train again.

    4.23.2021 - After years of planning, the wheels are finally in motion to turn Clinton’s abandoned train tunnel into useable recreational space by improving it and connecting it to the Mass. Central Rail Trail, which, once complete, will run 104 miles from Northampton to Boston. There are 51 miles of trail completed today, a patchwork running across the state that various groups are working to connect.
