Operation "Bring Bak Amtrak" is in full effect. It's mission is to restore the Amtrak Sunset Limited Service, which runs from New Orleans and Jacksonville, making it's way through Tallahassee
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina damaged the train tracks. Although the tracks and freight service were restored quickly, Amtrak never restored passenger service.
Robert J. Stewart, the Chairman of the National Association of Railroad Passengers said, "This is the state capitol. The capitol ought to have air service, highway service and train services available."
Anna Brandt grew up riding the train. Her father worked as an agent for the Pennsylvania Railroad. She says having service in Tallahassee would mean everything to her and others her age.
"It would make it so much easier for the old people if we had a train we could ride," said Brandt. "They even have a handicap area on the train."
Local officials throwing their support behind "Bring Bak Amtrak" say the benefits would be endless.
State Representative Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda said, "It's an environmental issue, it's a national security issue with regard to using petroleum and less oil. It's also a safety issue for all our college students who travel back and forth.
Brandt hopes the extra support helps bring the train back.
"I want to get the train back and running again," she said. "The train needs us. We need it here in Tallahassee."
