HAMILTON CITY, Calif. - Rail service is returning to Hamilton City. 

The California Northern Railroad will begin operating the line this week for the first time in 12 years. 

The rail service will deliver products to Nutrien Ag Solutions and at the Old Holly Sugar Facility in Hamilton City. The company upgraded nine miles of railroad track that runs parallel to I-5. 

Officials say they chose Hamilton City as a place they could easily serve multiple counties. 

Additionally, they say the company will create 15-20 new jobs over the next five years.
