By Patti Cecala | Journal Editor

With the help of Good Morning America and Michael Moloney and Paige Hemmis of Extreme Makeover Home Edition, J.T. Robertson, watched his dream of making the Arcade and Attica Railroad more handicapped accessible for people in wheelchairs. At right, Mitchell Ling of the A & A, was conductor for the day’s event. A Proudman boy, who attends Springville Learning Center, was one of the first to ride in the new handicapped accessible train car. In one of the the photos below, J.T.’s mom, Monica Simons, thanks Good Morning America for helping to make her son’s dream come true. In another photo Senator Dale Volker can be seen talking with the Extreme Home Makeover stars. Photos below show the CYC Volunteers, who worked tirelessly day and night, to ready the station for “showtime”! Also seen below: The A & A crews and Maple Grove Enterprises worked overtime welding, fabricating and refurbishing the coaches.
