TAZEWELL, Va. (AP) - Tazewell officials are looking to restore and repurpose an old freight and passenger train station.

Town officials have created a committee to work on restoring the former Norfolk & Western Railway station in North Tazewell. The town recently acquired the deed for the station.

Town Council member and regional historian Terry Mullins tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph (http://bit.ly/1eNmLiP ) that the building is in “pretty good shape.” He says it’s one of only two stations remaining on the Clinch Valley line between Bluefield and Norton.

Mullins says the committee plans to meet in early March.
