    Thanks for the blog post, Mr. Richards. It is my understanding that the passenger train idea you presented has many complex moving parts, so to speak. It involves the investment of millions of dollars and the cooperation and funding from local, state and the federal governments just to get the project moving forward. And Amtrak would have to be convinced it would be a profitable business venture.

    I'd love to see the passenger train become a reality for southern Idaho in the near future but have my doubts there is a real financial commitment from our local, state or even federal government for this project. Hopefully, the many private businesses that have expressed interest in developing and utilizing the local rail spur will also finance a whistle-stop here and in the various towns and cities in southern Idaho.

    A train stop for the new industrial park concept in Mountain Home is going to be a massive project requiring a lot of cooperation between private industry and various government agencies. It will be interesting to see how the development of the old Air Force rail spur comes about and maybe my grandkids will one day be able to hop on a train bound for Seattle or Denver.
