A lot of activity.
Richard, SMART has a Healdsburg rep?
Glad to hear there is still blood flowing thru your veins.
I'm now in contact with the SMART board including the Healdsberg rep. There is a LOT of pressure to bring the SMART train up there. But the interesting item is that Healdsberg Lumber's new location is south of the river and could benefit from having freight service from NWP
There is a good status update in the Press Democrat today re: the reopening of the line north of Windsor. Basically there is no money identified for this project including the "$50 million to $75 million" for a new bridge over the Russian River into Healdsburg.
But find the bridge issue moot at least for getting to Healdsburg. The River is just at the outskirts of town and just accross the river from the station. The line could be built up to the river and have a shuttle or short walk into the town. BTW that walk would be shorter than the walk from the new Larkspur station to the ferry terminal there.
RE: spurs, SMART has resisted replacing spurs during the rebuilds.
The reason why I am asking that question is because i'm not sure if SMART, if they ever do go to Healdsburg, would rip out all of the spurs entirely, or leave them in place.
Been a while since I've been in this group. If NWP ever manages to get up to Healdsburg, would they be interested in servicing the industries up there? Maybe even a possible wine train north to Cloverdale once all is in operating order again?
The Press Democrat shows a map that indicates fire in the Healdsburg/Windsor corridor:
Does anyone know if fire has encroached onto NCRA/NWP/SMART properties?
Richard: I believe you have property up there. Care to share what you know?
Hey team. How did you miss the move of the Daylight car from the Healdsburg storage lot?
