The outreach arm of the American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation, which has been in operation for two years now, is expected to share details about a new public train route that its Interpretive Guides will be conducting onboard educational programs on. You may recall that the APRHF Rail Rangers conducted public onboard educational programs on the Hoosier State train between Lafayette, Indiana and Chicago, Illinois beginning on November 1, 2016. The program received immense praise from both passengers, Iowa Pacific, and the Indiana Department of Transportation. Onboard programs came to a premature end on February 26, 2017, when Iowa Pacific’s contract to operate the Hoosierexpired. The Rail Rangers also provide educational narration on private rail excursions across the Upper Midwest.
To be among the first to hear the announcement, sign up for E-newsletters from the Rail Rangers at their website, www.railrangers.org. Details will also be posted here at railrangers.org and also on TrainWeb.
