Re: PAS potential acquisition scenarios

I don't think "monstah" trains are anything new for them... I recall a near 160 car train east through Fultonville, NY in '05, and they've got near 180 car trains running through Georgia (via YT video).

Re: Grafton & Upton Railroad (G&U) Discussion

Well, that's interesting. But... he also is involved in the Seaview Railroad over in R.I.? First time I've ever heard of that. Odd, RI corporate records show a different owner than the one quoted in the article.. http://ucc.state.ri.us/CorpSearch/CorpSearchSummary.asp?ReadFromDB=True&UpdateAllowed=...
