EcoNews Report: Trinity County Rejects Rail Study

Larry Glass
Bob Doran

Supporters of an east/west railway line are trying again to gain traction for their ideas. The project, however, would involve serious ecological and social costs. Larry Glass (Executive Director of the NEC, and SAFE representative) and Tom Wheeler (Executive Director of EPIC) discuss these issues and the proposed feasibility study for an east/west railroad connecting Tehama and Humboldt. The Trinity County Transportation Commission recently rejected a grant from CalTrans to study the proposed rail line.
