NIPRA offers its readers an in-depth look at rail news articles and issues selected for their relevance to the aspects of development of the Columbus – Fort Wayne – Chicago passenger rail corridor!     The November 2013 edition  features a look at the potential for real estate development focused on the proposed Miami – Orlando rail link; highlights the petition drive undertaken by #TransitColumbus on behalf of the Columbus – Fort Wayne – Chicago passenger rail proposal; and includes articles by students at the University of Illinois and University of Nebraska.

Of in-depth interest to the Columbus-to-Chicago corridor is a recent article from the Tampa Tribune noting the competition between Tampa and Orlando airports.  Linked to the Florida East Coast’s “All Aboard Florida” passenger train between Orlando and Miami, Orlando International’s master plan update proposes a massive expansion program with the ambitious goal of becoming recognized as the state’s preeminent transportation center.

And don’t forget the Annual Fall Meeting of the #Midwest High Speed Rail Association on Saturday November 9, 2013 from 8:00 to 1:00 at the Crowne Plaza, Indianapolis Downtown Union Station!
