“The economic impact when freight railroads invest in their network reverberates across America and in cities like St. Joseph. As the home to Herzog, a rail supplier that employs hundreds in our community, our city sees the real benefits of the private dollars that go into rail infrastructure, from direct jobs to a more efficient freight network for our businesses.”
