Have a look at this recent report by the Environmental Law & Policy Center.  It demonstrates that passenger rail development is good for the Midwest’s manufacturing sector.  There are 460 companies in the passenger rail supply chain, in seven states located within the Midwestern rail network, creating the locomotives, components, and services needed to develop and sustain passenger rail operations!  We noted 99 companies located in Indiana, and 122 in Ohio–48% of all the companies identified in this seven-state study!  A fair number of these industries are clustered across Northern Indiana, including 3 in Fort Wayne.
