Biloxi supports return of Amtrak passenger trains

BILOXI — The city of Biloxi wants Amtrak to bring back the Sunset Limited.

Members of the Biloxi City Council approved a resolution Tuesday.

Right now on the coast, train service is exclusively the transportation of freight.

Biloxi officials say the Gulf Coast region is isolated from the nation’s passenger train system.

In late August 2005, service between New Orleans and Orlando, Fla., was suspended following the lingering effects of Hurricane Katrina.

City spokesman Vincent Creel says tracks have been repaired so Amtrak could renew passenger service.

Creel says passenger service could be good for tourism, including the casino industry and offer area residents another transportation option.

Creel says the mayor of Tallahassee, Fla., has been promoted resumption of the Sunset Limited.
