Willits Rail Line Gone?
Hank Sims' Town Dandy column in this week's North Coast Journal confirms what I thought I noticed when we were leaving Willits on Tuesday: The section of rail line that crossed Highway 101 just north of Willits has been paved over.
Wow. I guess someone down there isn't holding their breath for the rail line to start up again. I could see paving over the rail lines up here. After all, re- establishing rail service to Humboldt is a bit more far- fetched than to Mendocino County, at least as far north as to Willits.
I'd be curious to know just who it was that decided it was extreme wishful thinking to leave that section of rail uncovered?
