The FRA approved a grant for up to $31.8M for the TCMC Second Train project, despite MN's $10M of matching funds remaining absent.

I rode the Empire Builder yesterday between St. Paul and Winona. Around an hour late going to Winona, and we had to pull off into a couple sidings for freight traffic. Back to St. Paul we were going pretty fast almost the whole time and arrived 7 minutes early.

Hopefully the cuts to Amtrak will make this more of a priority at the state legislature.
