Wichita has not been a stop for Amtrak Train since 1979, but this week some are optimistic train service will return.

Amtrak officials talked to lawmakers recently about the Heartland Flyer, which connects Oklahoma City to Dallas. But, there's talk about it beginning in Newton with a stop in Wichita.

If it's extended, Newton could become a turnaround hub for Amtrak trains.
