Nothing has been filed with the STB... yet.

Hope this trails group is "with-it", can prove it is a responsible party and has financial integrity.

Uh, they were making a joke about Saluda after it becomes a bike trail...

You know, those old wheel generator driven headlights...

I'm no expert, but terminal outgassing sounds like something to avoided..


Time for  you to edit your title.!!!

Technically it will reopen. As a trail.
