Bringing back rail road transportation in the Eagle Valley does not seem to make any sense. The impact to the communities with noise and pollution does not offset the financial benefits to the community. Why bring back an antiquated transportation technology? The for profit companies that operate the rail line look to be leaning on the communities to fund this project through grants with little benefit for the communities. So really funding this project would be on the tax payers of the regions it will be running through with little benefit. Trains are loud and dirty, We do not want them back in our community.
