Skunk Train now offering ‘locals discount’ to Humboldt; Humboldt’s last week of news

The California Western Railroad -- also known as the Skunk Train -- will increase its spray radius for local discounts. Humboldt and Lake Counties can now receive the ‘Local Discount’ that Mendocino has been enjoying.
The discounted price for trips out of Willits is $35 for adults and $20 for kids, and then out of Fort Bragg it’ll be $15 for adults and $10 for kids.
A rep for the Skunk Train said those wanting to take advantage of the savings would just need to provide an ID that indicates a Humboldt County address. For advance tickets the discount cannot be applied online at this time, so you’ll have to call (707) 964-6371.
The railroad was originally built in 1885.
The story begins at 8:11.
