Lebanon Mason & Monroe Railroad & Lebanon Sign Renewal Contract!

Lebanon Mason & Monroe RailroadLebanon Mason & Monroe Railroad & Lebanon Sign Renewal Contract!

It's official, the train will keep on rollin'!  Per The Cincinnati Enquirer, the city of Lebanon and the Lebanon Mason & Monroe Railroad have signed a fresh contract and will keep the tourist attracting railroad operating from historic downtown Lebanon!

That's great news for the small businesses dependent on walk-in traffic the LM&M brings to downtown Lebanon.  While the number of riders for LM&M may be down over the last few years thanks to the tight economy and area consumers reduction in entertainment dollars, LM&M is still a critical contributor to the local scene.  It was a tough decision for the city of Lebanon government.  Dollars are tight, revenue is down, and agreeing to maintain the five miles of railway necessary to support LM&M means dollars for other infrastructure project aren't there. 

The Lebanon city government doesn't gain enough revenue from their share of LM&M's operating profits to make this a break even proposition, but maintaining a thriving downtown Lebanon is important to them.  Faced with the real possibility of losing the LM&M to Mason or Columbus, the Lebanon city government made the decision to ensure the LM&M stays for at least another two years.

So if you want to help ensure the long term viability of the LM&M in downtown Lebanon, take a trip or two in 2013.  Between Dr. Seuss, Thomas, Polar Express, Pumpkin Express and a host of other themed rides, there's an option for every taste!
