Utica councilmen support Pullman service
November 13, 2012 - Chris Morris
Two councilmen from the city of Utica say they would support luxury rail service on the Adirondack railroad.
WKTV reports that First Ward Councilman Frank Vescera and Councillor at Large Jim Zecca are "excited to hear that a developer from Chicago wants to get that upscale train operation up and running."
The councilmen are referring to a proposal by the Adirondack Rail Preservation Society and Iowa Pacific Holdings to use restored Pullman rail and sleeping cars on the rail line between Utica and Lake Placid. The goal would be to bring passengers from New York City to the Adirondacks.
"The two Utica legislators have formed an initiative called 'The Utica Rail Summit,'" WKTV's report reads, "which will hold its first meeting later this month."
