Clint Rubey offers his ideas on the rail spur.
Save spur

Roughly 30 members of the Red Oak community came together on Thursday, Sept. 14 to discuss the future of the city’s rail spur.

The rail spur, which comes off of the main line of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad line, heads north into the industrial park, and was installed by the Red Oak Industrial Foundation in 1979 to provide two tracks for a former business. The rail spur is currently tied into Johnson Controls and Minsa. Both own and maintain their own siding, along with a switch off of the spur.
