I salute you for contacting your government reps.  A lot of the members of this site are modelers so that's why I asked.  I've advocated many times that members of this site do the same as some do not have the experience of doing so.

SMART's success (so far at least) has triggered a lot of interest in the renovation of passenger rail in your area to alleviate growing traffic gridlock.  I live in Palo Alto and without CalTrain our freeways would be gridlocked.  

As I travel up there frequently my interest is to see the line extended into Healdsberg and on to Cloverdale where that city built a brand new station for SMART.

Glad to have you "on board".

Hello Rick and welcome.  This is an awesome group.

I see you are in Novato where SMART is building a new station.  Have you ridden the new train and are you a modeler?
