SecTrans LaHood: National rail system moving ahead into the 19th century
From Welcome to the Fast Lane:
DOT ready to talk about future of rail
Stop talking and start doing! I know, I know, it's all easier said than done. Anyway:
"In the 1800s, this nation built a rail system that fit its needs at the time and fostered economic growth. Well, our needs may have changed, but this DOT is going to make sure that our passenger and freight rail systems are just as relevant to the future of our economy."
And thus a million midwestern railroad towns will come back to life. Maybe.
