Reported by Paul Dyson, RailPAC President

This past Saturday, January 19, RailPAC held an open meeting in downtown San Luis Obispo primarily aimed at raising grass roots support for the proposed “Coast Daylight” service. The meeting was attended by over 50 people, more than half of them locals , who had heard about the meeting by word of mouth, the RailPAC website, through the Sierra Club e-mail net, or on the local KVEC radio station the evening before.
