Wrong Side Of The Tracks At Crescent Beach
Not surprisingly when I arrived at the same crossing the next day another train was going by ... this time with tanks and boxcars. Chemicals with names like chlorine hydrochloric acid, sodium hypochlorite and liquefied petroleum gas were being transported along with goods that sounded less hazardous.
Postscript, Feb. 16, 2013:
By the looks of the No Coal Exports sign (above) that I spotted since posting this article on Dec. 17, 2012, some Crescent Beach locals are making an effort to prevent the development of a coal terminal (mentioned earlier) that would increase the number of train runs clattering down the BNSF tracks.
Read another post about the increasing train runs HERE.
