Midwest High Speed Rail Association 2013 Fall Meeting part 4

This recording is a continuation of NARP ( National Association of Railroad Passengers ) Board Chairman Robert Stewart’s presentation that started at the end of part 3. You will see Purdue University Student Government members receiving awards for their efforts in helping Save the Amtrak Hoosier State route.

The video then proceeds to Rich Davis, Management/Transportation Consultant discussing a proposed Chicago Fort Wayne Columbus high speed rail route and the economic impact it could have for that region if built.

I actually had a discussion with an older gentleman from Ohio on that topic while waiting for Amtrak Lincoln Service yesterday inside Union Station Chicago.
