HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) - A study on running a passenger train between Holland in western Michigan and Detroit is gaining interest.

The Grand Rapids Press reports (https://bit.ly/1dUAKQA ) Friday that the Macatawa Area Coordinating Council’s Policy Committee has endorsed a proposal to look into whether service could be developed on existing rail lines.

The proposal was made by the Michigan Environmental Council and the Michigan Association of Rail Passengers.

Initiative spokesman John Langdon says the issue is long-term and the study will only tell whether it makes sense to move ahead to the next level.

The passenger line would pass through Grand Rapids and Lansing.

Langdon says most of the route would run on tracks owned by CSX Transportation.
