In Feb. 2019, Skunk Train VP Robert Pinoli was quoted in a newspaper article that the hillside is being watched for 2-3 years to see how stable it is, after drainage and other work has been done. But the article does not say when that time started.

There is also the issue of paying for the work. A federal grant application was turned down last year.

We rode the Skunk Train a month ago and the docent or conductor said that tunnel work was suppose to be complete sometime this winter.
