At yesterday’s Northfield Rotary lunch, member Doug Jones (left) presented a history of rail in Rice County and economic development arguments for its continuing expansion. In attendance was the president of Progressive Rail in Lakeville, Dave Fellon. (Click to enlarge.)
See this previous blog post and comments on how I got to know Dave last week.
Tracy Davis, Ross ‘Casey Jones‘ Currier and I have made arrangements with Dave and VP Dean Goranson to ride the train next Wednesday from Lakeville to Northfield. We’ll interview them for a podcast episode, discussing the proposed ethanol plant in Bridgewater Township, the prospects for commuter rail, the status of the Northfield railroal depot, and other railroal-related issues.
