A new $537,000 train station in Chemult will be dedicated Wednesday. Some people are asking the question why a project involving a 300 square foot building is costing so much. It's a large log cabin with wooden siding and large timbers. Planning and review has been underway since 2005. More than $387,000 came from the federal government. It paid for land purchase, a kit-built cabin, parking lot, a ramp, a kiosk, and parking lot. Officials justify the expense by saying it will serve about 9000 Amtrak passengers this year and 14,000 travelers by 2030. Some of the line item expenses were $75,000 for design which included a kit-built cabin, $188,000 paid for the parking area and platform, and $52,000 for kiosks and information signs. The dedication is 2pm Wednesday at Chemult. This project went through four committee screening processes before it was constructed.
