State leaders are working to save rail service in Indiana. Negotiations are now underway with INDOT and Amtrak to keep the line between Indianapolis and Chicago operating.

The Hoosier State Line operates four days a week but federal funding will be cut off next Tuesday.

To keep the line running, it will cost taxpayers about $3 million a year.

On Thursday, INDOT will release a cost-benefit analysis of the existing line and four options to improve frequency and departure times.
