It is set to begin at 11AM at Kelly's Bakery at 402 Ingalls Street on the Westside of Santa Cruz and will go 2 miles on flat open ground to Neary Lagoon Park where there will be a family picnic.

On Sunday, January 27, People Power will host a walk along the rail corridor in Santa Cruz in response to recent threats by Union Pacific to fine "trespassers". The walk will include information on the history and future of rail transportation in Santa Cruz and will feature local historian Ross Gibson. It is set to begin at 11AM at Kelly's Bakery at 402 Ingalls Street on the Westside of Santa Cruz and will go 2 miles on flat open ground to Neary Lagoon Park where there will be a family picnic. Participants need not walk on the tracks themselves and trains do not generally run on Sundays. Heavy rain will postpone the event.

The event was inspired by a recent proclamation by Union Pacific that it had an intent to begin handing out tickets to people that walked on the line. Please come and bring your friends. If we get a big enough group it will be a fun walk and show our determination to expanding the use of this transportation corridor. If the railroad doesn't like it, they need to sell it to the county. The county's Regional Transportation Commission has been in negotiations for over three years to acquire the line.
