The Milk Man is Returning, Will the Milk Train Return Too?

King Brothers Dairy in upstate New York, and others too, have brought the “Milk Man” back. No he doesn’t have an old-fashioned wagon pulled by “Old Dobbin”. Nor does he even have a “DIVCO”. Instead he has a modern truck equipped with GPS. The Albany Times-Union had a great article on the return of the milk man.

Now that the Milk Man is returning, how about bringing back the Milk Train? No, I am not advocating bringing back the old Boston & Maine tracks to Schuylerville (where the dairy is located). I want to see these “long haul” milk trucks off the road for the sake of our ecology. No, I don’t have a perfect solution, but if you have any ideas, respond to our comments.
