The impact to Puget Sound may be worse than the train impact. Cherry Point is an aquatic reserve and there they will pile the coal up on 80 acres, water it with 50-million gallons daily, then load it onto 2 massive tankers daily using a conveyor belt. It's in that process that the coal dust will be hardest to control and will coat the waters. That (along with the massive tankers) ends the crab fishery, the eel grass beds and herring population.
