I am writing to tell you that I am not in favor of trains running through Salida, CO as I live right across the street from the railroad tracks and it will be environmentally unsafe to have these trains running multiple times a day and night because of noise pollution, unsafe cargo of waxy crude oil which could spill out over our beautiful public land and also cause forest fires since it is very dry around here. Not to mention the Arkansas river is also right next to the railroad tracks which is also unsafe if it spills into the river. There is nothing good about this situation and it should be rerouted through different towns or not done at all. We do not want the noise, pollution, or possible fires to be started from these trains it will ruin our environment for sure. So please help our community by voting against this happening. Thank you!Cathy Hummel
