CLINTON — Neighboring the RAIL.ONE facility within the Lincolnway Industrial Railpark, Nevada Railroad Materials’ (NRM’s) development appears to be progressing, according to Clinton Regional Development Corp. President Mike Kirchhoff.
A “large pile” of railroad ties on the facility was the biggest indication to Kirchhoff, who observed them during a tour of the Union Pacific line last week. As for details of the progress, he hadn’t much insight as of Wednesday afternoon, adding that much of the progress is speculation on his part.
“I’d say they have a lot of work lined up to do,” Kirchhoff said.
NRM also came up during Tuesday night’s Clinton City Council meeting during discussion of the joint track agreement. Railpark companies would need to pay a fee to use the city’s rail line. That money will go into a special fund, which will be used for railroad maintenance in the future.
The City Council will rule on contracting for consulting services on this agreement at its July 8 regular meeting.
“The joint track agreement is something they (NRM) are going to have to participate in,” he said. “RAIL.ONE and NRM are using some of the same lines for their internal processes.”
