Visual Aids and Models

These artist renderings help visualize the magnitude and impact of the Nichols Brother's proposed railway system.

For reference, where applicable, the artist included a person in the images to demonstrate the scale and magnitude of this proposed project. FOHH to its best ability has used the information provided in the Nichols 15 year Master Permit Application (MPA) in Bio Assessment drawings for the rail simulations. (Based on NBBBI's MPA).

LET'S COMPARE . . . Consider (and get the facts): Compare Todd Shipyard in Seattle to Nichols Brothers Boat Builders proposition.
