Derailed Cars Near Spyrock

"You know what... now that I think of it, they could have wrecked and they moved them out of the "pool" as I call it (had a few) to keep them from being a hazard. They very well could have derailed and the NWP, SP, NCRA, EUKA (who ever)…"

Derailed Cars Near Spyrock

"From a civil engineering standpoint, I can see many reasons the cars were placed there. I am seeing some points where if the car were not there, the slope would not be as stable... I wouldn't pass up the idea that they were place…"

"The pictures show the "West" track of the double track from the 4th St. to W. Steele Ln crossing.  Freights run on the "East" track, or at least that's where I've seen them run the few trips they made up here."

Michael    I added to my status 2=24.  In response to your question, I had heard it during the Novato negotiations, then read it in the DEIR dated 2009 part 2.3.3.1 that is available on NCRA website. I have heard it since but I don't recall where.  I sure hope I am wrong as it makes no sense to not offer freight. I could see it in their efforts for the early startup, but after SMART finishes I would think it would be a no brainer.  I think there are a few potential customers still there.  I hope you find this message.... Jim
