Keep railroad for multiple purposes

By November 11, 2010

EDITOR: We can only hope the supervisors and the rails to trails bunch will get it.
It is unfortunate that too many people are so short sighted, letting their own agenda drive them, instead of them finding the best use for all people and this county.
For 30 years or more I had hoped the rails and trails bunch would “get it,” build a multi-use trail along the roadbed from Folsom through Camino to Cable Point then across the canyon on a people gondola to Pino Grande rail line to Georgetown and Pilot Hill and then Coloma and back to Folsom that would have the rail bed used for a train, one side used for equestrian and the other for walkers, hikers and bicycles. A concept that would sprout sidetracks and spurs using buses, short tracks, trails to the finest El Dorado County has to offer.
