Trouble for the AMTRAK Passenger Train Service
A local train station is at risk of losing its AMTRAK passenger train service if the Congress does not approve additional funds for the train service to automate its long distance tracks. TV24 spoke to City of Anniston Mayor Vaughn Stewart about the situation. Stewart says Anniston is a very small cog in the AMTRAK system. But, although our area seems insignificant- inter-city train service is actually important. Congress has set a December 31 deadline to resolve the issue.
