Whistle Stop Tour Builds Momentum For Keeping Rail

Garden City, KS (westernkansasnews.com) Friday’s whistle stop train tour across Kansas may have facilitated discussion to help save rail service for both Dodge and Garden City.  Track improvements are needed to keep the Southwest Chief up and running.  State Transportation Secretary Mike King had good company in seeing this happens.

Amtrak CEO Joe Boardman knows how significant it would be if the Chief stop running.

Garden City and other partners have applied for a Tiger grant for repairs to the railroad.  The parties expected to hear back next month.
