>>Return of Train Service from Reading to Philly Takes Another Step
(Reading, PA) -- Amtrak Train service to Reading is getting a little bit closer. Officials with the Schuylkill River Passenger Rail Authority say they've submitted a letter of intent to the Federal Railroad Administration to restore passenger rail from Reading to Philadelphia. This initial step taken Tuesday indicates the authority's desire to advance passenger rail to Reading. The service would be part of Amtrak's New York-Philadelphia-Reading corridor as part of the FRA's Corridor Identification and Development Program.
