A SINGLE SET OF RAILS has served BNSF since the 1980’s, when a second set to the south of the existing tracks was pulled out. Now, the rail line wants to put in a second line from Big Lake to Becker to better facilitate freight shipments. They want to build the line, however, on the north side of the existing track, and that will infringe on properties of many Big Lake businesses. (Photo by Gary W. Meyer)
