(Northampton, MA)  –  A hundred railroad workers have descended upon Northampton.  They’re staying in camp cars parked on the tracks in the Ward 3 neighborhood.  Three bright orange generators are running to power the camp. Neighbors are unhappy about the non-stop noise, fumes, and bright work lights.  The workers are laying the track for the 83-million-dollar “knowledge corridor.”
