The RTSRP Committee is right on track! 
Through a fully funded educational project a Brandon University student has developed a business plan for the restoration of the Rivers Train Station.
Research is being made into the most effective and efficient alternative energy source for the station. The options that are being explored include solar, biodisel, geo-thermal and wind.
Committee members and volunteers have held numerous clean-up sessions at the station, preparing it for reconstruction and renovation. Looking good!
The general foundation and structure of the building is in good shape. Steps have been taken to prevent further deterioration of the roof.
VIA Rail Canada is working closely with the committee and community and is enthusiastic about the future partnership!
Part of the 'green' restoration plan for the roofing may include Enviroshakes® ... superior shingle product composed primarily of reclaimed materials.
The committee continues to work hard to promote and spread enthusiasm for the project.
