The Northeast Corridor is Amtrak's busiest line and has been steadily increasing over the last few years. As high speed rail further develops it would be benificial for Williamsport to join the Keystone line (Harrisburg-Philly-NYC) whose ridership has grown 4.8% last year to just under 1.5m riders. A cheap and reliable (no flight cancellations) transport to Philadelphia can help boost Williamsport's rapidly expanding economy.

PaulWatkins There is no such thing as high speed rail(+150mph) in North America, You need to go to France-TVG or to Japan and now China to see what High speed rail is all about.

As for the Keystone line yes ridership is up, but it is still running at a lose.
