Amtrak signals interest in $600M rail line between Twin Cities, Twin Ports

There is an initial suggestion that rail service between the Twin Cities and the Twin Ports could return after 34 years.

Amtrak has reportedly expressed interest in spending $600 million on a route that would be called the Northern Lights Express. Passengers would be carried between Minneapolis and Duluth-Superior, with four round trips offered each day. Federal grants and local matching funds would pay for the service. One Amtrak official says it could be running in a couple of years....
