    Interesting coincidence.Did you know Tampa Bay is only second to Detroit for being the largest Metro in the nation with no local rail service (not counting the novelty trolley serving Ybor City nor Detroit's "people mover")? I'm not going to hold my breth for a return of conventional passenger rail to Ocala either. Best to wait until after the elections in November.Ocala may be lucky if they still have a bus connection if the elections are in Amtrak's favor.
