with Amtrak warn that Vermont could find it difficult to re-start rail service if
budget cuts force the state to discontinue a route between Albany and Rutland. Amtrak

back on track could take a long time.

itself the Vermont Rail Action Network is planning a save-the-train rally there
at 4 p.m. today to urge state leaders not to cut the service.
