Freight trains within a few months? Not to Humboldt County. I recommend that folks take a float down the Eel River from Dos Rios to Alderpoint and view the utterly devastated condition of the tracks. Even if funds were available to repair this section of track, it would take years just to get the permits in place to proceed with the work, let alone actually fix anything. Then all it will take is another big winter storm to re-trigger numerous landslides and shut the tracks down again, again and again.
