WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A high-speed rail line across the Delmarva Peninsula is among the proposals in a plan for improving rail service along the heavily traveled Northeast corridor.

Federal Rail Administration officials were at Wilmington's train station last week gathering input on 15 proposals for improving rail service, including a Delmarva route. The line would head south from Wilmington, through the Eastern Shore and across the Chesapeake, stopping in Annapolis before Washington.

The proposals are contained in a report that doesn't examine the costs of the proposals. The Delmarva route, for example, would require a costly rail bridge or tunnel across the Chesapeake.

Rebecca Reyes-Alicea, manager of the Northeast Corridor Project for the Federal Rail Administration, said a final decision is expected in 2015.
