Marquette says railroad merger wouldn’t increase train activity as drastically as in other towns


City of Marquette officials say the merger between Canadian Pacific Railway and Kansas City Southern, if approved by the federal Surface Transportation Board, would not increase train activity in the community as drastically as in other towns along the rail line. Mayor Steve Weipert said, although the merger would mean an additional six to seven trains passing through town each day, the trains would be running north and south, not crossing the highway and utilizing the Marquette rail yard as this train is.
