The Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce and members of the community joined Congressman Jodey Arrington, State Representative Drew Darby, and Senator Kel Seliger and the Big Spring Economic Development Corporation as they had their Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting for Big Spring Rail.


Terry Wegman, Executive Director of the Big Spring EDC, noted that this project has been in the works for 7 years and under construction for 5 in order to support existing customers and attract new customers. Wegman noted that today was a good day to celebrate all of the projects that they’ve been able to do. He noted that groundwork that’s been done so far has become a catalyst for attracting new business that will bring new jobs.


“We’ve got a master plan that actually takes rail around the airpark,” said Wegman. He advised that the philosophy of the Big Spring EDC has been to build the “backbone” of the project, but customers will build their portions of the project to support their industries.

“The next knock on the door, and we’ve got several of them knocking right now, could want to build more rail infrastructure and we’ll help them do that,” said Wegmen. “It kinda perpetuates itself. The more we do the more people come.”


When asked what he saw as being the benefit of Big Spring Rail Drew Darby, State Representative, told KBest News that the dedication of the facility will enhance Big Spring to service the oil and gas industry. He noted that the rail service would take trucks off the road, reduce costs to transport those goods and services, and lead to profit for the state and businesses.
