MICHAEL HOLDEN

I've Been Working on the Railroad
Since the invention of the railroad, construction of them has intersected with land issues. From the race to construction the inter-continental railroad in the 1800's to the abandonment of railroads and conversion to trails in the 1990's. Railroads have created land issues surrounding access, abutter's rights, and of course direct land ownership. Find out why railroads are so difficult to deal with when it comes to land issues. Learn about the Rails to Trails act of 1988 and legal issues surrounding the idea of "railbanking". Lastly, we will encounter a claims case that highlights all the issues surrounding railroads.
