WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- High-speed Amtrak trains could be in the future for commuters in White Plains and Danbury, Conn., according to a report on lohud.com.

A new spine, with stops at those two stations, is one of the options contained in a federal impact study of rail service along the Northeast corridor, the report said.

The project could cost between $267 billion and $308 billion and would expand the line to six tracks throughout the whole system, lohud reported.

Forums to gather public comment on this, and other options, start Friday and continue through the end of January, the report said.
