NCRCo requests leave to late file this notice of intent on the basis that its counsel was unavailable to complete the filing on May 31, 2022, due to unforeseen vacation travel delays and related issues associated with securing the information necessary to submit this notice of intent. Counsel is very mindful of the Board’s strict regulations related to the OFA process, but urges acceptance of its NCRCo’s submission under these circumstances on the basis that no party will be prejudiced thereby.

Pennies A Day-$130 A Person did not file unless a secret partner.

Three other entities notified the Surface Transportation Board of their intent to file their own offers of financial assistance to take over portions of the right-of-way. One was Mendocino Railway, owner of the Skunk Train, which said it wants to take over the tracks between Willits and a point about 15 rail-miles north of Willits, for purposes unspecified.

The Samoa-based, nonprofit Timber Heritage Association, which occasionally runs small “speeder” trains in Eureka and the Samoa Peninsula, told the STB that it would like to own the tracks around Humboldt Bay, presumably to continue such operations.

The final notice came from Arcata resident and frequent LoCO commenter Uri Driscoll, operating under the name “Seeker Enterprises.” Driscoll told the STB that he would like to buy much of the railroad line around Humboldt Bay in order to run a business that would offer pedal-powered rail excursions along that line. He told the STB that he had secured a $200,000 line of credit on his home to finance the costs of assuming that stretch of the line, and also offered up his retirement account as collateral.
