It's a sad story and unfortunately not a bit surprising. I'm sure the town rakes in plenty of money just from the RR bringing people to ride the trains.
I've seen it time after time, get something good and fun going in a town, and in short order the town bigwigs will tinker, fuss and fiddle it right out of existence - all in the effort to squeeze more dollars out of it.

Home of the nationally acclaimed, award-winning Flaming Beaver Express Service. Now partnering with the New Mexico Northern with the new Southwest Beaver Express, serving Albuquerque and points west.
There is a huge amount of people who visit Jim Thorpe during the foliage season. I have been there many times and also seen big crowds during summer months. The town will still get tourists but there will be a decrease in revenue for their future. Those trains are nearly full in the summer months I visited there.
There are two sides to every story but I still feel that government agencies try to squeeze too much out of hard working business companies helping transportation of goods and products.
RDC units awaiting 2:30 pm departure.
These units are a favorite to one famous member here at least.
good for the owner! We, the people, need to stand up to these bullies in government and I support this man. Actions have consequences and now the town of Jim Thorpe can decide if these people truly represent them or not. I assume these are elected officials.
rbturner: So Jerry, how did the Pack do yesterday?

JNXT 7707: Another W Randy. Next up, Chicago. GO PACK GO

The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Ditto for the Steelers. Yeah 2 and 3! Now we're cooking with gas! It's amazing that when Roethlisberger won his first Superbowl ring, some of his offensive line were in diapers and pre-school!

yardmaster54: Are you kidding Randy. Your such a big packer fan and yet you have to ask how they did? I guess that's a typical packer fan. GO COWBOYS!!!

JNXT 7707: Somehow I knew YM would pop out of the box

The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Just crank the handle on the box, listen to some carnival music and then "Woody the Cowboy" and the Slinky Dog pop out of the box yelling, "Go Cowboys"!

yardmaster54: Laughter IS the best medicine.

umpdan31: I'm cracking up. Laughter is all I have in this football season. The Eagles offensive scheme sucks. Why have any running backs when all you do is throw, throw, throw. Opposing teams are ready for that.. RPOs are fine, but don't use them all the time.

yardmaster54: Dan maybe you should fly like an eagle into the future, things may be better.
