Milwaukee meeting for high speed rail on October 28

The Wisconsin Association of Railroad Passengers is hosting our fall meeting
this year. The meeting will be held Milwaukee from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on
October 28. (If coming from Chicago please use train 331 northbound and
train 338 southbound.)

It will be held at the Holiday Inn Downtown, 611 West Wisconsin Av.,
Milwaukee, WI. The hotel is located between Michigan St and Wisconsin Av,
along 6th St. It is 2 blocks north and 1 block west of the Amtrak station.

If you are interested in getting involved in high speed rail advocacy, or just looking for a good opportunity to spend some time in Milwaukee (a very cool town), come on by!

We're hoping to replicate the Illinois Amtrak expansion in Wisconsin over the next two years, which would mean increasing the 7 Milwaukee-Chicago daily trains to 10 daily trains, and adding at least one more daily train between Minneapolis and Milwaukee (with connections to the Hiawatha, or perhaps going through to Chicago's Union Station).

We can only do that with the active involvement of people in Wisconsin, so if you live in Wisconsin, join us! See you in Milwaukee....
