Keith proceeds to discuss the common lack of awareness of many individuals towards the impact and importance of the railroad industry in the roots of society and its implications on modern-day commerce and economics.

“80 percent of what we have was most likely shipped through rail at one point, and more so yet today with the new restrictions on truck drivers and trucking, and the lack of interest in driving long distances has created a hardship on the trucking industry- many of them are really going out of business even.

Each one of them has the potential to contribute to the growth of our country and we can’t do without one or the other,” Keith explains.
