More security on Amtrak Friday

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Look for beefed up security at Amtrak stations Friday.

But don't be alarmed, it's only a test.

Amtrak officials say there is no threat and it is not related to the terror alert for Americans traveling in Europe.

Amtrak is running a security program coordinated with local officials in certain cities called Rail Safe.

Most recently Amtrak ran rail safe in the Midwest on September 10th.

They also run the safety program periodically during busy holiday weekends as well.
