Steam train visit highlights how we’ve changed
While Thursday’s whistle stop for the Union Pacific No. 844 locomotive was a classic moment for the community’s train enthusiasts (and there were many in attendance), it’s also a poignant reminder of the vital role transportation plays in community success and growth.
When it comes to transportation, the last three years, specifically, have been important in this community. We’ve seen a major project stumble and falter but get up again, we’ve seen city residents band together to lobby for road upgrades in their areas of town, and we’ve seen the impact that such work can have on improving quality of life in our community.
