The Herald Star - Latest rail news is encouraging (Editorial)

Officials with the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission heard an encouraging report Wednesday about the potential in Amtrak’s plans for the Buckeye State. According to a report by The Columbus Dispatch, an economic impact study on a proposed Amtrak route that would serve Columbus shows the investment would generate between $36 million and $48 million.

The study commissioned by All Aboard Ohio, suggests ridership on that route could generate between $3.9 million and $7.2 million in wages per year.
