Officials mark opening of new Wallingford train station
Federal, state and local Connecticut officials are marking the opening of a new train station in Wallingford.
It's scheduled to begin operating for Amtrak trains Monday.
It will eventually serve trains on the CTrail Hartford Line, a commuter rail service between New Haven, Hartford and Springfield, Massachusetts, that's scheduled to launch in the middle of 2018.
Appearing at the grand opening, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said the new station "marks a major milestone in the evolution of much-needed service."
The new $21 million station on North Cherry Street replaces an outdated station nearby.
It features high-level platforms on both sides of the track, canopies and ticket vending machines.
It's the first of several new stations being constructed along the Hartford Line.
AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
