    ROCKINGHAM - Two Vermont towns have reached an agreement that clears the way for a railroad company to build a propane facility along Route 5 between Bellows Falls and Rockingham.

    The towns' agreement with Green Mountain Railroad this week permits installation of three 60,000-gallon propane tanks alongside the tracks in Rockingham.

    In exchange, the towns get improvements to local roads and water mains.

    The Rockingham selectmen and Bellows Falls Village Trustees approved the contract and agreed to issue the fire permits the company needed to proceed.

    The Eagle Times of Claremont reported that the project could create up to 10 jobs.
