Volunteers with Snohomish County Train Watch tracked train traffic around the clock at locations in Edmonds, Everett and Marysville between April 21 and 28.
The train watch was organized to estimate the amount of coal and oil shipped by rail through the community to coal export facilities in Canada and oil refineries in Skagit and Whatcom counties. It was conducted in coordination with the Sierra Club of Snohomish County, Transition Port Gardner and 350 Seattle.
On Tuesday, Train Watch will report on what it sees as the risks surrounding transport of the cargo through Snohomish County. There also will be discussion of developments at the state and national levels in response to an increasing number of coal and oil trains.
The event begins with a free reception at 6:45 p.m. Results of the train watch will be presented at 7:30 p.m. in the Everett Public Library Auditorium, 2703 Hoyt Ave.
