The idea of passenger rail service carrying people between Concord and Massachusetts got a boost Thursday when the state Senate voted 14-10 to pass a bill that lets the state obtain federal money to study the idea.

The bill, SB241, lets the Department of Transportation access federal funding to complete the project development phase of the Capitol Corridor rail project, which would bring passenger service north from Lowell, Mass., to Nashua and Manchester and possibly to Concord.
