December 11, 2018 – HAPPY HOLIDAYS! everyone from the Wisconsin Association for Railroad Passengers. As a Holiday treat I’m posting a speech/ presentation that wasn’t within a WisARP meeting.
Hopefully everyone is familiar with the upstart passenger railroad in Florida named Brightline, a private company. Russell Roberts, Vice President Government Affairs and Brightline have given us permission to post Roberts presentation about Brightline from this past October at the Midwest Intercity Passenger Rail Commission (MIPRC) meeting. Roberts explains how the Florida endeavor is more than just a railroad experience.
In addition to the presentation, Mark Quam (West Central Wisconsin Rail Coalition) has supplied a dozen pictures from his Florida visit in October. He had a first hand experience with Brightline. These are included at the end of Roberts’ presentation. Enjoy this special video! Happy Holidays!
