12166Re: [FJGRailroad] Rumors
- Nov 15, 2006Don't get me daydreaming Mark!!!! The last I heard anything was back in 2000 when
Benjamin Moore said they wanted rail service. Of course, they want the state to pay
for it and the chances of them re-building the FJ&G from Fonda to Johnstown is slim
to none. Paul Larner says the High-Bridge would never hold an engine these days, even
though he begged me to drive my SUV over it! (Yes, my SUV and a diesel engine
are in TWO, totally different weight classes!!!)
I've never heard of a plastic plant being in the industrial park! Don't forget, the industrial
plant is beyond the Walmart Distribution Center which was planted smack dab in the
middle of the ROW!!!! I can't imagine the logistics of re-building around that place!
The ROW is in pretty good shape, running a track up probably wouldn't be too difficult,
but the High-Bridge and Walmart present more problems!
The last I remember, the County was really itchy to pave the Bike Trail down to Fonda.
Anyone have any current info on that?

plastic co. nearby the industrial park? Mark
