The Hatfield Office of Emergency Management would like to remind all residents that the newly debuted high-speed rail system in western Massachusetts is now traveling through Hatfield on a daily basis . ALWAYS use extreme caution when near the rails or the railway street crossings.

These trains are travelling at approximately 70 mph and are almost silent in comparison to the trains passing through town that we are accustomed to. They do not cause the ground rumble or shake as do the passing freight trains.
