An Army Reserve detachment has a new home in an unused building in an industrial park in the town of Barre.

Since 2002, the local detachment of the 220th Transportation Company had been located in a small building on the Barre-Montpelier road in Berlin.

Company Commander Capt. Adam Ziegner says the unit’s 20,000-square-foot location that was once used by the rail car manufacturer Bombardier gives the soldiers space to store six vehicles and train.

Previously, the citizen soldiers had to do much of their training in New Hampshire or Massachusetts.

Ziegner says there are 25 members of the 220th in central Vermont.

The 220th returned from Iraq in 2006.
