# Long-Distance Trains: “Mobility Machines”

From time to time in this space, I have written about the importance of long-distance trains in this country. Unfortunately, much of the time that has meant trying to refute and debunk all of the misinformation being put forth by the anti-rail factions.

For readers interested in a detailed analysis of the importance of our national system of passenger rail service, I recommend a hot-off-the-press paper titled Long Distance Trains: Multipurpose Mobility Machines.

This document is a combined effort from the Midwest High Speed Rail Association and the National Association of Railroad Passengers.

Let us hope it will have some impact where it’s needed most … in the Halls of Congress.
