Posted: Wednesday, November 17th, 2010 at 6:24 am

The 3M plant in Knoxville is working with Quad Cities based Trackmasters on upgrading the railroad spur off the Burlington-Northern Santa-Fe main line. The upgrades consist of the installation of new rails, ties, a derailer and the replacement of the track bed. 3M officials hope the work will be completed by the end of the month weather permitting. The track is used to supply materials for the manufacturing process.
