KimK: Here Comes The Coal

Kim Knerl comments: "On Tuesday, Dec. 4, between 4-7 p.m., a public hearing will take place in Spokane to address concerns of the proposed increase in train traffic that would carry coal from Montana, through northern Idaho, on its way to the pacific coast to be loaded on ships bound for China.

Question (from Kim): What are everyone’s thoughts on the potential coal trains, maybe as many as 60 per day, traveling through our region?
