NAPA, Calif. — The new owners of Napa Valley Wine Train, a leisurely fine-dining experience through California's wine valleys, are entertaining  the idea of starting commuter rail service to help offset local highway rush-hour traffic, the Napa Valley Register reported.

“We’re trying to explore how it could work, what kinds of cars we would need, what kind of capabilities those cars would have to have in terms of Wi-Fi,” co-owner Scott Goldie said last week.

A commuter train would be designed to take off the road at least some of the 25,000 to 68,000 vehicles that travel various sections of Highway 29 each day, according to the Napa Valley Register.
