Thursday 6:00pm
@ The MVR in downtown youngstown (MVR map)

In order to accommodate more citizens in learning and getting involved about local passenger rail efforts, the local branch of the All Aboard Ohio train advocacy group will be having its monthly meetings on Thursdays in the early evening. (changing from 12pm on the 16th floor of the Metropolitan Tower downtown)

Your next opportunity to explore the group's efforts will be this Thursday!

While The Guv may have scuttled the Cleveland - Columbus - Cincinnati corridor and its awarded $400 million in federal funds, plans are still ongoing in multiple states with linking President Obama's home of Chicago to points on the east coast.

And trains need to flow between Lake Erie and the mountains, which perhaps places Youngstown along the route.

While the 3C Corridor may be dead, efforts of planning are ongoing to establish the piece of the Cleveland-Youngstown-Pittsburgh in the high-speed rail connection.

Why not stop by and listen?
Good food,
Good ideas,
Trying to improve the quality of life in the Valley.
