RICHMOND, Va. (AP) The head of the Federal Railroad Administration is calling on state officials to develop a shared vision of rail service along the southeast corridor. <br />
FRA Administrator Joseph Szabo spoke Friday at a Virginians for High-Speed Rail event in Richmond. <br />
Szabo challenged officials in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia to develop a plan for service along the Southeast High-Speed Rail Corridor between Washington, D.C., and Atlanta. <br />
Officials say passenger ridership has been setting record highs in the Southeast. Freight rail traffic in the Southeast also has been increasing. <br />
