Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports flooding closed highway 121 at Eight st since mid morning. It doesn’t take much to flood in this area, per the article. This intersection is right by the depot there. No reports of it actually flooding the railroad, or actual damages yet to the railroad. However drainage was improved in this area as part of getting the railroad running again. It might help to provide a bypass channel for the flood waters through the horseshoe part of the creek. Map here.

NVR reports The Skunk Train filed for bankruptcy. They plan on to keep running. Thanks to the NWP Network for the heads-up.

UPDATE 20 Jan 2010, 10:24: Reports of crossing arm problems, no known damage yet.

UPDATE 22 Jan 2010, 00:22: Report from someone who have views photos of area; no damage to railroad. Improvements greatly helped.
