The Train Never Stops in Dixon by Bil Paul

But residents' hopes for their community were raised when the secretive, supposedly rich Carissa Carpenter arrived, promising a $2.8 billion movie studio complex. As she spun her tales of visiting movie stars, jobs and putting the town on the map, Carpenter's story began to fray at the seams and citizens began asking questions. In "The Train Never Stops in Dixon," residents and officials recount their thoughts and involvement, revealing a sometimes divided place where many were ready to live the dream.
