Wheat Growers Welcome Rails To The Future

June 28, 2014, 7:08 AM by Perry Groten

Wheat Growers Welcome Rails To The Future
ABERDEEN, SD -

Wheat Growers says it is looking forward to the eventual return of heavy rail service from Chamberlain to Presho as it looks at potential locations to build a $40 million facility west of Chamberlain.  

Nearly 150 people attended a series of meetings in Lyman County this past week to hear details of the Rails to the Future plan.  

The South Dakota legislature has appropriated $7.2 million to the railroad trust fund, and Rails to the Future has received more than $1 million in pledges from private investments.  

Wheat Growers Dale Locken CEO says the benefits of the facility would reach further than patrons, providing an economic lift to central South Dakota.  

Potential locations have been identified for the 110-shuttle loader facility, but a final location hasn't been picked.
