GERBER, Calif. -

There are plans to build a railroad from Tehama County to Humboldt County.

Officials from the Land Bridge Assoc. are working toward a feasibility study for the railroad.

Current plans bring the railroad into the town of Gerber, which officials say could generate a lot of jobs.

There is already a railroad that goes from Humboldt County to San Francisco but officials say that the railroad is in terrible condition and the cost to repair it would be more than the cost to build a new one.

The feasibility study should begin early next year.
