Maryland’s commuter train already crosses boundaries into D.C. Soon, the MARC could be heading north into Delaware. 

According to The News Journal, Delaware and Maryland officials are in early talks to bring the train to The First State, and whether to make Wilmington or Newark the final stop. The expansion could also include SEPTA trains to Newark, effectively connecting Philly and D.C. by commuter rail.

This definitely seems to be in the planning stages. Delaware officials are set to talk to Maryland officials next week. And besides, we’ve already seen that Gov. Larry Hogan seems to favor high-speed Japanese magnet-trains over old-fashioned commuter rails.
