Funding to bring Tri-Rail downtown advances


Written by Lidia Dinkova on March 11, 2015

The South Florida Regional Transportation Authority wants Miami-Dade County to fund about $8.3 million of the cost to bring Tri-Rail to downtown Miami.

Tri-Rail is a commuter train that links Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. In Miami-Dade, the trains stop in the west. A recent push to expand east and have trains come downtown hinges on nailing down $69 million to fund the infrastructure.

Most recently, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez said he supports Tri-Rail service downtown.

Are there AEM-7 "Toasters" still in operation? I thought that all AEM-7 were retired after the purchase of HPP-7 and new Siemens locomotives...

All the HHP-8 Locomotives have been retired , but Amtrak still uses the Toasters. Although there being slowly replaced by the Cities Sprinters...

You ruined the Talgo

On another note, those pictures of the NE corridor are simply stunning. It is impressive what a headstart the U.S. had in passenger transport development by the late 1930´s, and how it went out the window.

Che peccato! And so much more could have been done if not for the short sightedness brought with the auto motive age

Amtrak service from New Orleans to Orlando: Return possible


By Richard Rainey, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune
Email the author | Follow on Twitter
on March 17, 2015 at 2:37 PM, updated March 17, 2015 at 2:38 PM

Discontinued after Hurricane Katrina, Amtrak passenger trains could once again rumble along the Gulf Coast from New Orleans to Orlando, Fla.

But not before it clears a few political hurdles first.

A bill working its way through Congress calls for the formation of a working group to consider the ins and outs of restoring that passenger rail route. Its members, selected by the Federal Railroad Administration, would include representatives from Amtrak, the states and cities along the route, members of the Southern Rail Commission and railroad company officials, among others.

Indiana's Hoosier State service gets 30-day extension


The Amtrak Hoosier State service between Indianapolis and Chicago will get a 30-day extension through the end of April, keeping alive the possibility that the service won't be ended after all.

Earlier this month, Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announced the service would end April 1. But the extension announcement follows a Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) phone call last week with INDOT Commissioner Karl Browning, during which FRA Acting Administrator Sarah Feinberg committed to reconsider the position that INDOT officials say would cause the Hoosier State service to end.

"It is not clear that the FRA will change its mind," Browning said in a press release. "Because Ms. Feinberg committed to reviewing this, we want to give the FRA another opportunity to consider the problems Indiana has been airing."

Pact bodes well for restored Amtrak Montrealer


Written by Douglas John Bowen



A U.S.-Canada agreement on cross-border travel and security signed Monday, March 16, 2015 bolsters efforts to restore Amtrak's Montrealer, discontinued in 1995, particularly if Customs pre-clearance facilities are established to eliminate long dwell times at the U.S.-Canada border.

The announcement, made from U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy's (D-Vt.) office Monday, said, "U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Canadian Minister of Public Safety Steven Blaney signed a new pre-clearance agreement in Washington that was negotiated under the Beyond the Border Action Plan approved earlier by President Obama and Prime Minister Stephen Harper."
