More than 2,000 sign petition seeking train’s return

Posted: Friday, August 30, 2013 1:29 pm

A grassroots effort is showing support for the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad’s return to Dillsboro.

Several Dillsboro merchants are spearheading the effort to collect signatures on a petition addressed to Jackson County Commissioners.

That petition supports “the increase of rail service in and out of Dillsboro to spur economic development throughout all of Jackson County.”

Copies of it have been distributed to businesses in Dillsboro and Sylva and as of Aug. 29, the total number of signatures topped 2,000.
