Meridian could benefit one day from a long-time desire, now under study, to re-establish a passenger train route from Ft. Worth, Texas, to Atlanta.
The plan is a priority of the Texas-based I-20 Corridor Council. The missing piece, however, is a 345-mile stretch of track between Marshall, Texas and Meridian.
According to Richard Anderson, chairman of the I-20 Council, the service was discontinued more than 50 years ago.
