FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) -- Indiana is back on track. The Hoosier State will get a piece of federal funding for a high speed rail. At least 364,000 dollars worth.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood says the funding is being re-directed from Wisconsin and Ohio.

The incoming republican governors in those states do not support the rail projects they received stimulus money for almost a year ago.
Indiana originally applied for 2.8 million dollars, but was denied.

High Speed Rail Advocate Geoff Paddock says the ultimate goal is still to link Cleveland to Chicago through Fort Wayne.
