Sussex County Chamber of Commerce

The Sussex County Chamber of Commerce has actively favored the restoration of rail service on the New York, Susquehanna and Western Rail Line for many years.  This included an aggressive PR campaign that led to the purchase of property by New Jersey Transit to support rail operations:

We spearheaded an aggressive marketing and public relations effort a number of years ago. That public relations effort helped to convince the State of NJ to purchase an abandoned landfill property in Hardyston Township for a future rail facility. All of this after Sparta declined the opportunity.  

(Note: While the correspondence happened in February, we just got permission recently to post this.)

The endorsement for bringing passenger rail service back to the NYS&W continues to slowly gain steam.  Please help us get more business organizations and local governments in line to support
