Congress asked to consider Pinal County passenger rail

There are 1 comment on the story from Jan 30, 2009, titled Congress asked to consider Pinal County passenger rail. In it, reports that:

Representative Barbara McGuire, D-Kearny, is asking Arizona's Congressional delegation to consider use of existing rail lines for a passenger rail from Phoenix to Superior as part of their decision on a land swap.

The Magma Arizona Railroad Company's rail line, which already exists, could provide easy access for seniors to the Valley and bring tourism in both directions, according to McGuire.

"This rail would channel revenue in both directions from the Valley to eastern Pinal County," McGuire said. "The rail would make it easier and more cost-effective for non-drivers and seniors to travel to Phoenix, to access air travel, shop and see their doctors."

The rail also would provide access to a nearby medical campus in Queen Creek and Apache Junction and Central Arizona Community College, she said.

my family were the first 100 settlers called tent city but could introduce you to some of last hard rock miners who are still .and my memories when superior was called tramp mining town due to the legacy of magma mine and many who lost their lives.
