Tackling the Headlines 68

Work begins — finally — on Miami-to-Orlando fast train
Take: Nothing's going to stop All Aboard Florida from running its trains. I plan on addressing the peculiar situation with train service Florida within a month.

Georgians tout passenger trains to Atlanta
Take: Georgians don't need high speed rail service. What they need is a network of well-connected lines that provide frequent service.

All Aboard Wisconsin explores privately funded passenger rail between Madison and Chicago
Take: It may be the only way Wisconsin's capital ever gets rail service.

Third Amtrak Route To D.C. And New York Coming To Lynchburg
Take: Well, it's time for there to be additional frequencies. The new trains would be the first time in decades that there would be marketable frequencies along the route because the Cardinal's times aren't conducive four times a week and it may be sold out with Midwestern passengers.
