Mayo Clinic Seeks Mitigation for Rochester as Condition of Canadian Pacific - DM&E Railroad Merger

"Even one major accident by a moderately safer railroad would be one too many."

However, the DM&E continues to aggressively advance the project. In January, GOTRAC, an organization supporting DM&E, sent a letter to the South Dakota Legislature urging swift action to pass a bill that w
