COAST TO COAST.

Once upon a time, the Pere Marquette Railroad offered passenger train service Detroit to Grand Rapids, and Chicago to Muskegon or Grand Rapids.  (Boat trains to Ludington disappeared a long time ago.)  The Grand Rapids service remains, one round-trip daily under Amtrak auspices.  But Michigan's Department of Transportation will be holding public meetings this week in connection with a plan to restore cross-Lower Peninsula train services.
