Greenwood & Railroad Still Talking Over Depot Sale

GREENWOOD, MS (Ben Caxton) — Greenwood’s Mayor took advantage of a trip to Washington this week to spend some time meeting with Canadian National Railroad executives. The city has long been interested in purchasing or leasing the depot owned by the railroad which serves as the passenger terminal for Amtrak passengers in Greenwood. The Mayor would like to see the terminal refurbished to give visitors waiting for the trains a taste of what Greenwood offers. Currently according to the Greenwood Commonwealth newspaper the lobby sports just ten chairs against a wall, and a water fountain. CN uses much of the rest of the building for storage. In Washington, Mayor Carolyn McAdams met with three representatives of the railroad, including assistant vice president of public and governmental affairs David Woodruff, and described the talks as “very productive.”
