Greetings-I haven't seen this posted here yet...Sierra Pacific Industries a day or two ago announced they are closing their Arcata sawmill and eliminating its 120+ jobs.  This was one of the Emerson…Continue

Thoughts and notes on Eureka traffic
3 Replies

The thread on rebuilding the NWP at least to Willits rekindled some thoughts I had on the shippers around Eureka and what's happened to them in the 16+ years since the railroad shut down.  Following…Continue

Several months ago I spoke on this forum about possibly posting some of the photographs I took behind the Redwood Curtain in the roughly 1992-1995 time frame.  I recall a few people being interested…Continue

"Oops!  As Jeff Moore points out below, I botched the spelling of two of these towns (Fernbridge and Ferndale).  I'm usually much more careful about such things, and meant no disrespect to the inhabitants or anyone who has a connection…"

"First off, it's Ferndale, Fernbridge, and Fortuna.  The residents of Slide (named after, well, a nearby land slide) petitioned the state legislature to rename their town Fortuna in 1884, the change happened in 1888.  The name…"

"Well, it's not 1964 YET but the news keeps getting worse and worse.  A new powerful storm is supposed to hit this weekend (March 1 - 3) and indeed, as of March 1st early a.m. the first outer band of showers is coming onshore at…"

"I wonder who was in charge of naming towns up in that area:  Furnbridge, Furndale, and Fortuna, all within a couple of miles of one another. I also wonder how rains this year compared to 1964."

"Fernbridge is at Milepost 268.7, about two miles north of Fortuna and 16 miles south of Eureka.  Humboldt Creamery's facility sits at that station, it's also where the state highway to the old Victorian town of Ferndale takes off from…"

"That canyon literally gets it from the top down and the bottom up.  Building a trail will be questionable at best. It will wash out multiple times a year also.  I also couldn't imagine going through the Island Mountain Tunnel again. I…"

"Absolutely correct, the line has never been abandoned.  I don't remember now if NWP ever went through a formal abandonment process for discontinuing service, which can be done separate from abandoning the rail line, or if they have simply…"
