It’s no longer the brain train. It’s been dead so many times and continues to walk, it is the zombie train.
The once-left-for-dead commuter rail line from Macon to Atlanta continues to have fresh life breathed into it, with vocal support from the governor and the state’s transportation commissioner.
Thursday, representatives from governments along the proposed line, as well as a possible connector from Atlanta to Athens, met to discuss rail possibilities.
Proponents calling themselves “Georgians for the Brain Train” put the summit together in Hampton, their name a reference to the connection between the University of Georgia in Athens and Georgia Tech in Atlanta.
