Frequent freight rail service in Red Wing supports the city’s economy and builds opportunities for growth. The city is currently serviced by Canadian Pacific Railway. Amtrak stops once going north and once going south daily. A second passenger train would augment freight, too, locals say. Over 56 Red Wing community members attended the virtual Great River Rail forum on March 11 to discuss the Twin Cities-Milwaukee-Chicago intercity passenger train and how the Red Wing community will benefit. The event was co-hosted by the Red Wing Area Chamber of Commerce.
