Northern Flyer Alliance in Action
Track to the Future
April 2010 A Red Letter Day for Kansas and the region!
In looking back on our long history of advocating for passenger rail expansion, we thought it was a big day for expanding the Heartland Flyer north to Newton, Kansas. Little did we know that one day the removal of restrictions on KDOT to support trains would help save the Southwest Chief.

The Northern Flyer Alliance, Inc. is an advocate for the reintroduction of passenger rail service from Kansas City, Missouri through Wichita, Kansas to Fort Worth, Texas. NFA is a coalition of 49 cities, six counties, and 19 Chambers of Commerce along the I-35 corridor that have joined together to promote passenger rail service in their communities.
Help us to get the Heartland Flyer extended from Oklahoma City north to Wichita and Newton, Kansas. This would allow the connection of the train to the Southwest Chief that runs from Chicago to Los Angeles.
