Rep. Jacob Bachmeier D-Havre gives a personal anecdote while speaking before a crowd at the annual Rail Passengers Association Northwest Division meeting Saturday at the Elk's Lodge in Cut Bank.

Montana lawmakers attended a Rail Passengers Association meeting, in person or with representatives or videos shown, and supported long-distance rail passenger service.

"The railroad is truly one of the great equalizers and it must be protected and advocated for all and by all," state Rep. Jacob Bachmeier, D-Havre, said. "If we want to continue to protect our passenger train services, we have to fight for it. We need more wealthy CEOs and politicians to ask the important questions like, 'What is on your heart?' And if they don't ask, we must communicate our values with them anyway."
