(Host) The state of Vermont would like to restore passenger rail service to Montreal within three years.

Transportation Rail Director Joe Flynn says much needs to be done to meet the goal, but he says it's doable. Amtrak service to Montreal ended in 1995.

Part of the challenge in re-establishing a passenger train to Montreal is finding a way to screen the people crossing the border.
