SMART Freight 


SMART now provides freight service to North Bay businesses. SMART Freight operates on the historic rail corridor constructed by Southern Pacific Railroad in the late 1800s and later utilized by Northwestern Pacific Railroad (NWP) beginning in 1914. Today, as a part of the legislative actions taken by Senator Mike McGuire to establish the Great Redwood Trail between Willits and Eureka California, SMART has taken over ownership of the rail corridor from Healdsburg to the Sonoma-Mendocino County line from the North Coast Railroad Authority, and now has the responsibility for providing freight service to North Bay shipping customers.
