From their 2018 service proposal
"The Santa Cruz, Big Trees & Pacific Railway is the only common carrier railroad that is located in the county of Santa Cruz. We are the community railroad, having train crews, support staff, locomotives, passenger cars, administration offices, and maintenance yards established and ready to start operations on the branch line immediately. Unlike other railroads, there is no delay in setup time needed to find sufficient facilities, qualified staff or deal with the arduous task of moving train equipment. Our location is established with a facility ready to provide the requested rail service at a momentís notice."
Could Brian and his Aptos ilk pull some legal fuckery to delay? it? Of course, it's in their nature to stop progress and growth.
