Wichita passenger rail supporters have what they call a “major announcement” set for a 4 p.m. Friday news conference at Union Station, 701 E. Douglas.

The news conference, to celebrate National Train Day on Saturday, is being characterized by city officials as an “update on significant developments regarding passenger rail advocacy in this area.”

The news conference will be led by Wichita Vice Mayor Pete Meitzner, along with business representatives who serve on his local steering committee.

It will take place outside the north entrance of Union Station, just off Douglas.
