  • ATLANTA OFFICIALS WORK ON RAIL SYSTEM FOR '96 GAMES

         LS Transit Systems consultant Stanley Feinsod "expressed
    optimism" yesterday about a proposed commuter rail system in GA.
    In a meeting with the Georgia Rail Passenger Authority (GRPA),
    Feinsod "declined to say whether his report would recommend the
    state start the service." Feinsod will submit the $2M completed
    report to the GRPA in December.  State Rep. Terry Coleman, chair
    of the House Appropriations Committee, told the GRPA this week
    that "he would like to see 'demonstration' lines up and running"
    from Savannah to Atlanta and Athens to Atlanta by the '96
    Olympics (David Goldberg, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 10/21).
