Indiana Amtrak boosters trying to build support


Some northeastern Indiana officials are expected to speak at the Lafayette event about their efforts to restore Amtrak service through Fort Wayne that ended in 1990.

The Northeast Indiana Passenger Rail Association raised $80,000 for a feasibility study and a tentative business plan to establish a 300-mile passenger rail line from Chicago to Fort Wayne to Columbus, Ohio.

"The orthopedics industry in our area wants access to O'Hare Airport in Chicago," said Fred Lanahan, the group's president. "There are large businesses in Columbus and satellite operations in Fort Wayne that want to be able to get their people back and forth."
