Rail advocates make case for second Twin Cities-Chicago passenger train
Post Bulletin - March 15, 2021
Rail advocates met online Thursday to talk about a proposed second Twin Cities-Milwaukee-Chicago passenger train. Hosted by the Great River Rail Commission, the public discussion began with a presentation about what a second daily train from St. Paul to Chicago – with Southeast Minnesota stops in Red Wing and Winona – would mean in terms of costs and benefits. The last step in getting the new passenger train to happen is a $10 million commitment from the state of Minnesota.
