    This is about your Oxford train story: Where did you live in Oxford? Years ago,I lived in a house (now gone) on South College across the street from the lumber company. The tracks crossed our driveway and I often wished I could climb aboard. And many years ago back East, I took the train to school on Monday and back home on Friday. I was so disappointed when we didn’t get the train here in Middletown a few years back.

      Barb, I lived on West High Street, corner of, I think, Locust and High…can’t even remember…But West High right by the tracks. SIGH, yes, I am with you, I was very disappointed when the train was nixed for Middletown. On one hand, the specs that I saw showed that it would not have been a very fast train and prices not all that great…Still, I would have LOVED it…I so, so, so wish our country would invest more in rail, I’d take a train any day over car…Maybe someday we’ll get our train here in Middletown, we have the old train station still standing, now we just need some trains! – Kevin
