On Tuesday, August 9, Salem County Commissioners Ben Laury, Mickey Ostrum, and Scott Griscom were joined by 3rd Legislative District Sen. Edward Durr for a tour/ride on the Salem County Railroad, operated by SMS Rail.
The Salem County Railroad is now ready for operation.
Along with the Port of Salem, access to interstate roads, the new Wind Port and Oldmans Airport, the railroad is an integral part of responsible growth in Salem County.
County Commissioner Deputy Director Mickey Ostrum said: “Putting the rail line back in service has been a years-long and difficult journey. Thank you to all previous Commissioners (Freeholders) whose support and hard work have made this a reality. Opportunities are open for businesses and jobs, utilizing existing structures, and tourism growth with rail bikes already in operation and recreation trains planned for the near future. Thank you to SMS Lines for putting the final pieces together.”

This is great. Hope it brings some life and revitalization back to Salem, a once beautiful and thriving city.
Where does it start and where does it end?
