Hopkinsville Kentuckian

Waitin' On A Train

It could have all been different!

In 1902, Crofton was at the risk of losing the railroad line running through town.
The railroad back then, was a lot more important to the town.

If the railroad made an offer today to move the tracks out of town, and they needed help,
how long would it take to round up 100 or more volunteers,... Maybe 5...10 minutes?

With the frustration I've heard (and experienced) of waiting on a train in Crofton over the years, I would say it wouldn't take long at all.
I think most would agree, they would be glad to see it go.
