Railroad funds freed
SALEM -- A federal panel is freeing about $375,000 from the Columbiana County Port Authority's January purchase of the former Youngstown & amp; Southern Railway.
The money was part of the $1.1 million purchase price and would have gone to the railroad's former owner, Railroad Ventures Inc. of Boardman.
The federal Surface Transportation Board ordered the $375,000 set aside to make repairs on the recently reopened line, which stretches from Darlington, Pa., to Youngstown, passing through Columbiana County.
RVI contested the set-aside before the board, but was overruled last week.
