…in bringing back its once economically-critical rail system?
With Vermont beefing up its rail structures to take heavier oil tank cars, and raising their overpasses to accommodate “double-stack” freight containers, on top of its Ethan Allen and Vermonter daily services into New York City; now Maine with its Downeaster passenger service Boston/Portland, five round trips per day, and beyond to Brunswick, the Granite State lags way behind its neighbors.
