Rothesay Resident Concerned About Rail Safety

A concerned resident whose property borders railway tracks in Rothesay putting his name in to join a committee dealing with rail safety.

Jim Crosby says two major issues of concern are the close proximity of rail lines to homes in the town and the size of the trains. He tells CHSJ News if a two-mile long train derailed in the valley its impact would be extremely widespread and moving the train would take days.

After getting a larger-than-expected level of interest from the community, Rothesay council passing a motion to increase the size of the committee from 6-8 residents to a maximum of 13.
