BOISE, Idaho — The Caldwell City Council on Thursday evening will consider a resolution to support restoration of Amtrak passenger rail service through southwestern Idaho, similar to the stance Boise Mayor Lauren McLean has taken on the issue. Resolution No. 315-22 supports the restoration of the Pioneer Line, which from 1977 to 1997 Amtrak ran through Boise on the Seattle-to-Salt Lake City route. The Pioneer Line also connected Seattle to Chicago during its 20-year run. According to a City of Caldwell press release, the city council will consider support of a passenger line that would run from Portland, Oregon, to Salt Lake City, Utah, with a stop in Caldwell.
