Anniston Could Lose Amtrak

Anniston could lose Amtrak train service by the end of the year — unless Congress takes action. A federal law requires that by the end of December, railroads must have automatic brakes built into tracks across America. But getting that done has taken longer than expected. Amtrak says that unless Congress gives railroads more time to install the systems, then many routes will have to eliminated, including the one through Anniston.
