Railroad Administration considers action for Santa Cruz tracks

Published Saturday December 3

SANTA CRUZ >> The Federal Railroad Administration is considering enforcement action after finding six miles of track in disrepair along paths used by Santa Cruz & Monterey Bay Railway The Polar Express Ride, which had to suspend sold-out holiday tours until Dec. 10.

A Federal Railroad Administration spokeswoman commented the track did not meet the regulatory agency’s safety standards for passenger trains.

The railroad is responsible for maintaining tracks and performing inspections based on federal safety standards, the spokeswoman said. She declined to be named.

The train is operated by Chicago-based Ia. Pacific Holdings, which also operates in Canada.
