Passenger rail line from Twin Cities to Duluth, MN proposed


Recommended Posts


I'm putting this here and not in the Minnesota thread, because I think this is a perfect example of the steam that passenger rail in this country is gaining. This proposal would restore Amtrak passenger rail from Minneapolis to Duluth along the "Rush Line Corridor" with top speeds of 79mph, compared to the earlier line (discontinued in 1985) of 50mph.

The controversy is that some think it could cut into a proposed commuter rail line and would be competing for funding at the state level.

Are there any new intercity passenger rail proposals in your area? Do you think this one is a good idea?
