BISMARCK — A Jamestown lawmaker wants passenger rail service to serve North Dakota cities along Interstate 94.
Rep. Joe Kroeber, D-Jamestown, is sponsoring a resolution asking the Legislature to study passenger rail service in the state, including options to implement a route in the southern part of the state.
There is new interest in restoring the North Coast Hiawatha Line in North Dakota, Kroeber said.

Having passenger service for Bismarck-Mandan connecting to Dickinson, Glendive, Billings and Seattle to the west and Fargo, Minneapolis and Chicago to the east would be grand. We had that with the North Coast Hiawatha until 1979. And the Passenger Rail Investment and Improvement Act of 2008 reconsiders the route. For nostalgic and convenience reasons, many North Dakotans along the southline would find renewed Amtrak service a boon.
Passenger boardings were up nearly 50 percent in August at Jamestown Regional Airport compared to the same month last year, according to the North Dakota Aeronautics Commission.
