More research is in the works to once again try to bring major passenger rail service through northeast Indiana. The Northeast Indiana Passenger Rail Association is leading the effort to commission a feasiblity study of routes between the two cities.
The group said the study could help the region secure federal transportation funds.
Organizers say the study will cost $80,000, which has been raised by private and municipal funds from Indiana and Ohio.
They expect the study to be complete by December.
Indiana’s NewsCenter reports the current proposal considers trains that would travel between 80 and more than 100 miles per hour.
