COOS BAY, Ore. -- An engineering study found that a rail line between Coos Bay and Eugene needs about $100 million worth of work before it can handle heavier train traffic. The study was paid for by anonymous investors interested in exporting coal from Coos Bay. Amelia Templeton reports.
The Port of Coos Bay bought the line in 2009, after it was shut down by a Florida company.
It’s been back in service for less than a year, moving small amounts of freight for sawmills and timber companies.
