Jim Hill and Great Northern Pt 2

Hill and Great Northern RR were especially interested in improving farming. They had a rail car with displays. They also had a demonstration rail car going town to town presenting new ideas about farming. Branch lines were built to encourage farming in remote areas. Hill made sure those farmers had a town and a grain elevator. Sometimes Great Northern reduced freight rates to keep the farmers' business. (from North Dakota Studies)
