Allen County to pay for studying passenger rail

Vivian Sade, Journal Gazette

– County officials have said yes to investigating the possibility of passenger train service from Fort Wayne to Chicago.

The Allen County commissioners agreed unanimously Friday to contribute $20,000 to study the viability and economic benefits of passenger train service from Fort Wayne to northern Indiana and Chicago.

Rich Davis, director of the Downtown Improvement District, said the Northeast Indiana Passenger Rail Association is close to having the $80,000 needed to proceed with the first of several studies involving rail service from Fort Wayne to Chicago. Davis is also a member of the rail association.
