RECAPTURING THE TRADITION.

Minnesota's High Speed Rail Commission submits a budget request.
Eventually MnDOT wants to run six roundtrips between the Twin Cities and Chicago each day at speeds up to 110 miles an hour.

The preferred route chosen for the future trains would run on the Canadian Pacific tracks along the Mississippi River and through Winona.
Swift of foot was Hiawatha.



With Wisconsin's reluctance to put any money into Passenger Rail, there's the old Milwaukee Road line on the west bank, as well as the Way of the Zephyrs, itself a racetrack, on the east bank and only in Wisconsin for about 115 miles.
