Will Kay Ivey Allow Passenger Choo Choo Train Service to Mobile?

The federal government is willing to spend 33 million dollars to kick off passenger choo choo train service between Mobile Alabama and New Orleans, with four stops in coastal Mississippi. Both Louisiana and Mississippi are ready to contribute some of their own cash. But Alabama Governor Kay Ivey is waiting.

Saturday, Governor Ivey issued a statement to al.com, saying she needed more info, especially about how the choo choo trains might impact business at the Port of Mobile. You can find that story HERE.

I'm not sure what to think about all of this. Will people really ride a train to and from New Orleans, when it will likely be faster to drive?

Below, you can watch a story on the topic from NBC 15's Rachel Wilkerson. Rachel does an outstanding job, and even includes "woman on the street" interviews, where she asks women standing on the side of the road what they think of trains coming to Mobile.
