Rail service between BR and NOLA?

Much like “a proposed loop around Baton Rouge,” rail service between Baton Rouge and New Orleans gets a lot of lip service. This, for example, appeared in the Times-Picayune last Wednesday:

I rarely go to New Orleans, despite the fact that there’s lots to do and see (and eat) there. But maybe I would go more often if there was a train between our two cities.

I like trains.
