Can you hear me?


Thank you.· My name is Reid Allen.· And I'd like to enforce everything that Darrell
has said. This -- it is a pretty canyon, and it's going to screw up the water, which we all depend on up in there, the springs, the fire hazard.

You put -- I personally put a trailer up there.· And when the fire comes, they won't even let me go in and take that out.· It's just a bad deal. There's a lot of other ways they could take that railroad.· They could take it even off of the Soldier Summit and go down.· It's just not feasible in our area or even when they follow even the 191 Highway all the way just off the side of it.

I just don't see it, and it will ruin the wildlife up there.· There's even antelope up there, moose, elk, you know, grouse, deer, even beaver up in there, you know?· I just -- please don't let them put it through our canyon.·That's all I have to say. Thank you.
