Southerner's comment history

Chickamauga is a good run, but not as good as going all the way to Summerville. I hope P&W either a)gets its collective head out of its collective hindquarters and allows steam on that line again (they say the steam engines are too heavy for their line, though 610, even fully loaded with coal and water, weighs less than their deisel engines do - but why let facts get in the way?), OR, better yet, Ga. DOT will award operaing rights on that line to TVRM. That would be the best outcome. P&W is a lousy corporate citizen, especially when you consider that the citizens of Georgia own the railroad, and have paid for upgrades to that line. But on the plus side, we'll have 630 AND 4501 in harness again in the near future -- God bless you, Wic Moreman!
