TUNNEL NO. 1 UPDATE – August 21, 2013
Operations from Fort Bragg have resumed and full service to the Skunk line has been restored. Our contractor is still working under traffic. We have additional work to do inside the tunnel, and if you missed helping out, we could certainly use your help. You can still support or efforts by visiting our GoFundMe page or by sending a check to Skunk Train / Foot of Laurel Street / Fort Bragg, CA 95437. All monies will go to the tunnel project first and then to re-roofing our 1885-built Engine House (The Roundhouse).
Thank you to all the individuals and local businesses who’ve stepped forward in our efforts thus far — so many of you sent in very kind notes and comments about the Skunk, and we truly appreciate it. A big thanks to Save the Redwoods League for stepping up to ensure service will be restored sooner rather than later and by taking the necessary first steps in protecting the trees and train line corridor.
