Rail roads are much more energy and resource efficient hauling freight and passengers than trucks and personal autos, giving them a potential advantage in a post-peak oil economy. But will societies invest in rail road infrastructure sufficiently? On this program we talk to Mitch Stogner, Executive Director of the North Coast Railroad Authority in northwestern California. In the context of the potential revitalization of service between Mendocino County and the San Francisco Bay Area, we learn about the kinds of budget, political and time challenges facing a large transportation project. Jason Bradford hosts The Reality Report, broadcast on KZYX&Z in Mendocino County, CA.
