Florida Senator Bill Nelson was in the Florida Panhandle this week continuing his work to try and bring c74490d5-5628-4f72-990b-2f0bf4fa3176passenger rail service back to the area.


Pushing the move to help boost the local economy,  Nelson met with locals at the Jackson County Ag Center in Marianna to advance the plan.


Panhandle passenger service was stopped in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina.


In addition to bringing more tourists to the area, Senator Nelson said the move would also attract more businesses.
