Supporters of the ‘Brain Train,’ undeterred by the lack of support for a rail line to Macon will rally at the Capitol tomorrow to show their love for the proposed Atlanta to Athens passenger rail system:
The Georgia Brain Train Group, a coalition of community and business leaders, released several polls last year showing strong support for the line from people who live in the counties along the planned route.
But Wednesday will mark the first time the project’s supporters have gathered en masse to make their feelings known.
“The governor doesn’t believe we have any support to make this happen,’’ said Emory Morsberger, the group’s chairman and a Gwinnett County developer. “We want to show him how much support there is.’’
Rep. Steve Davis is looking for opponents to “balance the “Brain” Train folks.”
Let’s just hope it stays peaceful. We don’t want any hear about any trouble between the pro-rail and anti-rail forces.
