Submission Text
I learned about the rail when I moved back to Vernal in October of 2020. I had grown up in Vernal but left after graduating. After moving back I heard of the rail I was interested to see this come through because I have constantly heard conversations about how the rail could be a huge benefit to our community in many ways. From the people I have spoken to, the rail brings them hope in having a more stable economy as it would be a vital resource to bringing in different industries other than gas and oil.
