At a meeting with members of the Commonwealth Transportation Board, Robert Lindgren, President of Randolph Macon College, made his opposition to adding a third rail for high speed trains in Ashland. There’s another issue.
Dr. Lindgren also addressed a proposal, that’s not part of the ongoing third rail study, to construct a commuter rail station in downtown Ashland.
The current proposal, he said, is a smaller version of one presented in June. Sites north and south of the town, he added, have also been talked about.
