Bay [T]rail from Samoa to Arcata to Eureka unanimously approved by NCRA

Looks like we might have trains again in the North Coast!!!

'. The board had just voted unanimously to receive a report from three of its directors, the ad hoc Humboldt Bay Rail Corridor Committee, and directed staff to bring back a resolution supporting “a broad-based Humboldt County community coalition to advocate for public and private funds with which to restore the Humboldt Bay Rail Corridor, including the provision of trail development therein.” The NCRA directors were so impressed with the extraordinary effort by the committee, local agencies and organizations, and individuals that they agreed to meet again in December in Eureka to move this plan forward.'

The Timber Heritage Association is moving it's 44ton diesel to Samoa soon, that will be our motive power for the time being, and the NCRA stated that they would do whatever they could to help us with logistics.

Excursions trains for the north coast!

I can't either. I'm hoping to go out soon and do some more track clearing.

Can't wait to see the A&MR 101 pulling the 'Harriman' coaches along the bay.
