Will New Milford Ever Resurrect Its Passenger Railroad Service?
The wheels are beginning to roll in New Milford, and you can be a part of the discussion.
Bringing back train service to and from New Milford is now officially scheduled for discussion on Thursday, September 20, at 7:00 PM inside New Milford's Town Hall, according to an article in the NewsTimes. New Milford Mayor Pete Bass and state rep. Bill Buckbee will host the forum and will also include the president of the Train Campaign, Karen Christiansen.
Currently underway is the New Milford Train Campaign, which hopefully will be beneficial in jump-starting talks, and eventual action, in bringing passenger rail service back to New Milford.
