Might be debris from Napa is going there. I heard much of Sonoma county is going to Livermore by truck but also heard there is a staging area at the Mecham Rd site. I know there is an endless parade of trucks out of Coffee Park right now.

Napa Pipe is on the CFNR line, but that site also has barge access.  Seems weird to truck Sonoma debris  all the way over there.  I might go look next weekend.

I've heard that debris is being transloaded in Napa at the old Napa pipe location. So I am assuming debris will be trucked to there. Looks like nwp loses out again.

I've seen TV pictures of residential debris being loaded by cleanup crews onto dump trucks so they must be hauling truck-sized loads somewhere.

I passed the setup on Saturday on the SMART train; did they move it by Monday morning?

I don't think they've really even begun a clean up the size requiring a railcar.... I know many people are still sifting through their properties...

Given that there are no hoppers in the concise it looks like the NWP has not been hired to haul debris away from the fire zones.   Bummer if that means it will be putting more trucks on 101.
