The company reports that more than $160 million is budgeted to install a double track line from Minot to Glasgow, Montana. The double rail line will serve to expand capacity and ease flow of rail traffic headed to the Pacific Northwest and beyond to international destinations.
Goehring said this is an important step forward, but there is more to be done to deal with the problems that the agriculture industry is experiencing with extreme delays.
