label levels:

There is currently no available "Beginner" label. The following is the default level label: The first train to arrive in Greenfield came up from Springfield in December, 1846, part of a line of the Connecticut River Railroad (later taken over by the Boston & Maine) that would extend north to Vermont. The Brattleboro & Fitchburg Railroad (later Fitchburg Railroad, in turn taken over by the Boston & Maine in 1919) ran through nearby Millers Falls, a line completed in 1849. Greenfield connected to that line that year. The year before, the Troy & Greenfield Railroad company was founded. Its hopes of connecting to New York State would have to wait until the Hoosac Tunnel was completed, almost thirty years later. At the beginning of the 21st century, passenger service to Greenfield continues, although at a much reduced rate than a century before.
