Grenada Railroad Celebrates Reactivation of Freight Service
The NCMRRA (North Central Mississippi Regional Railroad Authority) saved the short line from Canton to Memphis from abandonment. All the bonds have now been paid off on a project that no one believed had a chance of success. That’s what Mississippians do when they recognize need!
Thank you to our state officials, MDA, local officials and economic developers along this line. Special thanks to Mayor Larry Hart and Pablo Diaz for their heavy lifting during the inception of this project! This line is now privately owned and operated. Congratulations Mississippi!!!
