We will also hear reports from local rail passenger organizations in the states of New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania, such as NJ-ARP, DVARP and WPPR. Time will be provided for questions, discussion, and the exchange of ideas. We very much hope you will be able to join us.

"I wish to extend my appreciation to members of the Rail Passengers Association for their steadfast advocacy to protect not only the Southwest Chief, but all rail transportation which plays such an important role in our economy and local communities. I look forward to continuing this close partnership, both with America’s rail passengers and our bipartisan group of senators, to ensure a bright future for the Southwest Chief route."
Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS)
