Workin' on the Railroad
Evidently, railway freight service through town between northern California and Medford, OR to the north is going to resume sometime soon. The tunnel near the CA-OR border required extensive repair due to a fire a few years ago and trains stopped running on this branch. Now that the tunnel is operational again, workmen are getting the track back into shape. Unfortunately, no passenger trains will be coming through. They ceased running through Ashland in August of 1955. Passenger service along the west coast of the U.S. instead passes through Klamath Falls, 60 miles to the east.
