Dressing up Thurman Station for the holidays in early winter 2011, volunteers hang up Christmas lights. The open-sided rail stations at Thurman and Hadley are to be enclosed within several months — and feature rest rooms and ticket booths, county officials said this week.
continued Thurman Supervisor Evelyn Wood said the enclosed station would be useful, boosting the prospects of events now held at the site by the Thurman Station Association, a local community group.
“The station will look nice as an attractive new entrance to town, and it will be put to good use for a variety of activities,” she said, noting that bids have been advertised for materials.
Perky Granger, an active member of the station association, said her group had been waiting a long time for the upgrades.
“We anticipate this will help provide for more community events in Thurman, increasing tourism and commerce here,” she said.
