No trains running past Cloverdale? that is so lame! Why can't NRCA pull their act together?
Where is Abileen Jelani?

I appreciate the enthusiasm guys. But the simple fact is that THA has been trying to create an excursion train for 30 years. (Initially with the AMR #7, then the TPL 29, now the AMR #101 and TPL #37.) This is not easy. 

There will be NO  trains running past Cloverdale until the NCRA gets it's finances together. The Arcata and Mad River is dead, land easements reverted to original owners when the tracks got pulled up.  

The section from Samoa to Scotia will require about 25 million dollars to just a minimum level of operations. Samoa to Eureka, less. 

There are multiple political issues, from the East West ideas, to the rails and trails stuff. THA has been attending these meetings, and we are doing all we can, but no one is buying the line, and for now, we are just trying to restore equipment, including our operational 44 tonner, and our passenger cars.

How'd you like it? Have you been to Dallas?

I moved away because everything is so expensive there. Its much cheaper here. Gas is $2.89 a gallon! I'm in Denton, Texas, which is 20 minutes north of Dallas.
