More Crowds for 2nd Day of Amtrak Test Train Along Gulf Coast Route

19 Feb 2016 5:19 PM | Jackson McQuigg (Administrator)

The Dothan Eagle ran this great story when the train ran through Chipley and was met by an enthusiastic crowd.

Florida Congresswoman Corrine Brown, a longtime supporter of passenger rail, has been very visible at the Florida stops and is eager to get the service restored.

Crowds turned out in Tallahassee as well, according to local radio station WFSU.

FCRP's Steve Sayles and Bill Hutchison rode the test train and reiterated our enthusiastic support for the return of New Orleans-Florida service to elected and Amtrak officials onboard.
