Norfolk Southern Gives More Time for Group Working to Save Train Depot

Rocky Mount, VA - Preservationists who want to restore the Boones Mill train depot now have a few extra days to try to work out a solution.

A leader of the group says that Norfolk Southern has agreed to honor the original commitment to give the group until September 30 before moving ahead with demolition.

A demolition permit was requested last Thursday, and that would put an end to the project.

The group plans to meet this Sunday to decide their last ditch strategy.
