From the Democrat: Join in the Rally to "Bring Bak Amtrak" Local residents and rail passenger enthusiasts in the surrounding areas will come together to celebrate "Bring Bak Amtrak!" with a rally on June 23 at 11 a.m. The rally's goal is to restore the Amtrak Sunset Limited Service between New Orleans and Jacksonville through Tallahassee. Events begin at the Historic Tallahassee Amtrak Station with "Rally at Railroad Square," featuring food, drinks, keynote speakers and live music by JB's Zydeco Zoo. Ralliers round out the night with the Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers concert at The Moon. For concert tickets visit www.222moon.com The Amtrak Sunset Limited was the only truly transcontinental passenger route in American history. Hurricane Katrina damaged the train tracks in 2005, and though the tracks were repaired and freight service restored within a year, Amtrak hasn't restored passenger service. "Bring Bak Amtrak!," supported by the National Association of Rail Passengers, the City of Tallahassee, the Florida Coalition of Rail Passengers, Leon County and its Tourist Development Council, aims to help restore the route affecting 13 stranded stations from New Orleans to Jacksonville.
