Train advocates rally in support of Amtrak

About 75 people packed into Rutland’s train station yesterday afternoon to voice their support for Amtrak’s Ethan Allen Express.   The train provides daily passenger service between Rutland and New York City.    

Rutland leaders oppose Amtrak service cuts

As part of the state’s budget cutting, the Transportation Agency wants to eliminate passenger rail service between Rutland and Albany, New York. It would be replaced with a bus that would stop in additional Vermont towns.
