Railroad Service Meeting Today
Today further discussion on restoring passenger rail service in South Mississippi. Senator Wicker is among those who met with local leaders this morning to talk about restoring Amtrak service from Los Angeles to Orlando with stops along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The Southern Rail Commission is spearheading the effort to restore the train line that has been suspended since hurricane Katrina. When Amtrak did a trial run back in February hundreds of coast residents came out to show their support of the passenger service.
