Railroad Lines in Rural Areas May Be Set for Abandonment

Record #:
North Carolina Agriculture Commissioner Jim Graham has called for swift action to prevent abandonment of over 250 miles of branch line railroad system tracks across the state. These smaller lines run from mainland railroads, and are located in rural areas. Railroad abandonment could seriously hurt the economic viability of rural communities who use the lines to transport crops and materials.
