The Railroad

It is now public knowledge that we bought a railroad this week. The town purchased the Rail Line from Antone Mountain to just north of the Saratoga Rail Station. Much work went into this venture, by the attorney's and by SEDC.
I do not believe the town should be investing in such things, but under the circumstances I believe we did the right thing. It was paid for by Grants, and more money is available to upgrade the line to a Class 2 status.
Certainly the Scenic Railway could have a great impact on the regions economy when the line gets active between Saratoga and Gore Mountain. This can now happen because of our vote this week.
