New Buffalo hoping to become next big train depot

NEW BUFFALO, Mich. -- New Buffalo may soon become the next big train depot!

The city, along with Amtrak and the Michigan Department of Transportation, plans to file for a grant next week that would make New Buffalo an intersection for two high speed trains!

The depot would connect a line that travels from Detroit to Chicago and one from Chicago to Grand Rapids.

The grant is worth more than $50 million from the Federal Government and MDOT would then give another $20 million.

The city said it will file paperwork by Monday.
