Dedicated to Sharing the Heritage of Redwood Empire Railroading
I would expect that McNear would find it more convenient, if it were shipping by rail, to simply truck the product over the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge to the Richmond rail yards, rather than hauling it all the way to Schellville with a connection a few miles off to CFNR, and then again to the national rail system, no? Actually, I doubt that McNear ships far off enough to use rail, anyway. A lot more freight is shipped by barge out of the huge Dutra quarry (aggregate, etc.) and, I believe, run up the Petaluma River to Dutra's plant just south of Petaluma which is located immediately adjacent to the NWP/SMART ROW.
