It’s been a long wait for the SMART Train to start rolling through Sonoma and Marin Counties, and while the official launch of the commuter service is still pending, there was a large and enthusiastic turnout for the first day of free preview rides yesterday.

There was a wide span of ages aboard the SMART Train preview ride that KRCB joined, from seniors who remembered regular rail service many years ago to an infant, who made the trip easier for her parents, Kalila Nosker and Sean Hogue, by sleeping through a good bit of it.

A new exhibit from the Marin County Library pairs illustrations of San Rafael from over 130 years ago with photos of their modern-day counterparts. KRCB’s Tiffany Camhi reports the “Then and Now” photo exhibition reveals the city’s similarities and differences over several generations.
