Governor Paterson released New York's plan to get federal stimulus money for high speed rail service. If the state got the money, the governor is proposing spending it to improve passenger rail service, from Niagara Falls to New York City. State officials say they've identified some $10.7 billion in improvements to the rail system over the next 20 years, including a third east-west track for a high speed train that could cut the travel time between Niagara Falls and Albany by two hours or more.
