Group Description

WELCOME TO PRORAIL TRAVEL -- and free help in planning your train trips using the expertise of experienced train riders. We also keep a special eye on Amtrak's Empire Builder and Hiawatha trains as they serve our area.

Interested in taking action to help keep and expand Amtrak service in Wisconsin and the U.S.? Then join our ProRail Action Yahoo Group.

ProRail is an all-volunteer, multi-county regional organization based in Madison, Wis., and dedicated to promoting rail passenger service travel and service expansion. Founded in 1985, we are a chapter of the Wisconsin Association of Railroad Passengers and support the National Association of Railroad Passengers.

If you support passenger rail expansion in Wisconsin and you'd like to join ProRail to help accomplish that, a membership application is posted in the FILES section at this Web site. Otherwise, contact us at info@prorail.com or visit our website here.

PHOTO: Two Amtrak P42DCs lead the Portland section of the Empire Builder through the Columbia River Gorge near Maryhill, Washington, on May 18, 2007. That's 11,245-foot Mt. Hood in the background. The Empire Builder is almost right on time and the schedule allows the passengers great views in the early morning light. Thanks to photographer Gregory Weirich for sharing the photo and this description. For a larger view of this photo, click here. For other rail photos by Weirich, go here and search by his name.
