    Be wise that there are Conservatives morons in Cedar Rapids that are against Amtrak w/o question.

    However, with the Zephyr coming through S-IA. that therefore, will out fox them.

    Yes, these Cities need Amtrak Services. with Fuel going towards $3.75-$4 a gallon if not higher.
    I believe that there is a market.
    Thank goodness the morons did not blow down the Union Station in Downtown Davenport.
    Hoping to bring that River City back to life. vs the damn shopping malls in the burbs.
    This way, bring back some shopping in Downtown Davenport and its Historical will bring in Conventions. not everyone flies on Stupid Airplanes.
