We have to look to the future in transportation. Locals are begging to have daily train service in Defuniak Springs. The area is growing by leaps and bounds. If you look at the Amtrak service routes, NW Florida is being grossly neglected. Let's prepare for the future! Let's promote our country and let it's citizens see their country through ground transportation. You learn nothing of Geography in the air. Let's not let our European neighbors continue to offer better transportation, and thereby offer better education through train travel.

Sincerely and lovingly,
A long time local of beautiful NW Florida.
