Hoped-for Coos freight rail upgrade seen as a difference maker

If the federal government awards the $8.275 million grant request, the older track – 17 miles in New Hampshire and three miles in Vermont – will be able to carry 286,000-pound gross weight rail cars. That's as much as the rest of the St. Lawrence & Atlantic line and some 23,000 pounds more than it can carry now.
