  • Why, is it in the way of something? Why doesn’t HRC tear down the old theater too!

    • GREED! Ask Charles Hurowitz why its going away, and the stockholders who sold their shares…. GREED!Good news it will
      be loved as dearly in Mill Valley!

  • On the way to economic failure.

    I used to play on that thing as a kid and I’m getting up there in age,why are they taking it.ive stopped so my kid can play on it. What a shame. Man it’s looking like everything is getting f upped in this county!!!!

  • Well my opinion is, if we want tourism in our county. We would be fools to let the train go. It should be in a local town. 🚂. Keep the historical value Humboldt alive. I grew up playing on that train too. Sad times.
    It will be quite a site to see it going down the highway. 👁

  • I’ll be sorry to see it go! I didn’t realize they were so hard up for $$$$$$$$. The steam donkey was invented up here and Scotia probably wouldn’t be there if it weren’t for those two machines! SCREW Mill Valley!
