|Flattening the SMART track
Here's another sign of progress for Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit, as this engine automatically checks and levels railroad tracks which will serve SMART cars when the system is up and running. SMART will provide rail service along 70 miles of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad alignment. The project revives the long-dormant but publicly owned railroad right of way, serving 14 stations from Cloverdale in Sonoma County to the San Francisco-bound ferry terminal in Larkspur, Marin County.
