"Here is a way we can help bring the Historic trip of a Steam Engine Train back through Shreveport, and it costs us nothing but the time to vote and get others to vote," writes Marcus. "We will also be spotlighted in national news if our route wins ( the Dallas to Shreveport to Baton Rouge). Unfortunately we are behind by 3k votes and voting will end soon. We may not all be interested in steam engines but this would be a very good cultural city wide event if we can pull out a win. You can read more about it in the Thurs Shreveport Times. Please vote, confirm your email address, and pass it on."
