Rail Symposium Presentation Available

Last week, KMPO/SRTC sponsored a 'Rail Symposium,' as part of our 'Transportation Learning Series.' For the event, we brought in three national rail experts; Arthur Shoener, Avery Grimes, and John Ficker. They talked about the economics of the region and the past, future, and present of rail and how it fits in in our area.

If you couldn't make it to the symposium here is the power point presentation that was given.
