Future uncertain for Scotia historical train

SCOTIA – If you’ve been in Scotia recently you might have noticed that their historical lumber train located on main street has been fenced off.

The Scotia Community Service District is trying to determine if the train would be better fit somewhere else due to potential safety hazards. The old train used to belong to Dolbeer Lumber before it was transferred to the Pacific Lumber Company, and now sits in front of the Scotia Museum. The train has been located there since 1953 and both the museum and train are owned by the Scotia Community Service District.

Humboldt County Supervisor, Rex Bohn, says the community service district’s first priority is making sure the town is safe for its residents.
