Great Article Cal!!!


California has so much problems right now...and from that article seems to me the fact that the railroads have the upper hand here.


Would like updates on this...if you get.

Thanks again!!!

What the people need to do is take their complaint to the Department of Commerce. Unfortunately, States are powerless to force compliance. At the same time, the people also need to be aware, that if they become overzealous, they could loose those railyards. Not to mention the tax dollars that they contribute to their city. That is just the way business is done now a days. Ironically, in spite of all the evidence of health problems, another city will pay the railroads to move the yards. Lock, stock and barrel. Be careful where you step.
