From the article:

David Schonbrunn said SMARTís taking on freight service couldnít come at a worse time, with the agency considering service cuts. He also questioned whether the agency would abandon freight altogether once in charge, arguing that SMART had placed obstacles for freight operations in the past. SMART staffers and Bosco denied an opposition to freight.

I see Mr. Schonbrunn has been paying attention. He knows what is going on.

I am sure SMART would love an excuse to kill freight. Now they have the ability. This is the "watershed moment" the SMART board member is talking about in the article.

As a shortline fan, this development is really disappointing. I gather NWP has a lot of dedicated people (and possibly volunteers) that make it turn a profit. There's no way SMART can do the same and be profitable with all its expensive overhead.
