Not sure how the SR PD got a hold of it yet, I wasn’t expecting it to hit NCRA’s website till Friday. Busy week for NCRA with the presentation to the Humboldt BOS on Tuesday and meeting on Wednesday.

Study: North Bay freight service would impact region

The return of freight trains to the historic Northwestern Pacific Railroad could bring noise, glare, traffic and safety problems, according to an environmental study released Monday.

But rail cargo service in Sonoma, Mendocino, Marin and Napa counties will save fuel, remove trucks from Highway 101 and improve the region’s air quality, the report said.

Freight service also will give businesses an efficient way to ship their products to market, according the North Coast Railroad Authority, which issued the report. Trains could also be used to haul Sonoma County’s garbage to out-of-county landfills, the authority said.
