Inland port near Ashcroft would reduce truck traffic, save farmland: report

A Canadian National train carrying grain snakes its way along the Thompson River near Ashcroft, its cars stretching for miles through the low-rolling hills. One day that train could potentially stop right there and unload, smack in the middle of Bob Landucci’s 130-hectare sage-cleared site in B.C.’s Interior. Indeed, that’s his intention once he gets the facility, dubbed the Ashcroft Terminal, running with everything from fleet management to transmodal and bulk transloading services.
