WATERBURY -- A presentation on a proposed central Connecticut rail line also included discussion about the current state of transportation to and from the city.

About a dozen residents and officials attended a hearing Monday put on by the state Department of Transportation on the rail study, which is looking at several alternatives that would connect Waterbury with New Britain and Berlin.

Alternatives include running a passenger line on a railroad freight line operated by Pan Am Railways, bus service and light rail.

Even if everything went according to plan (on schedule and properly funded) they are anticipating that the service would take at least a decade to start.
