What is going on with NWP Co now that SMART is in the picture?

I guess this means NWP Co is no more? What does this mean for future freight operations/NCRA?
And most importantly, what does this mean for the rails around Humboldt Bay? Original post by Richard Brand.

The NCRA w-site contains a copy of SB 1029 which dissolves the NCRA and allocates $4M to SMART "for the acquisition of freight rights and equipment from the" NWP.....…/2…/20190109/Item_F.7.pdf
I'd be surprised if that amount would cover those costs. Maybe more importantly, I've had a chance to watch both the SMART BoD and General Manager and in my opinion, this public entity does not have the experience to run a freight rail operation.
If you have an opinion on this write a short letter to the Calif State Treasurer and express your concern about tax payers covering this effort. Nothing will take place without the Treasurers approval.

NWPCo still exists and won't be going anywhere, try to do some research before posting info like this.
