If branches are slapping the side of the train maybe they need to trim them. Have you seen the brush cutting machines the highways use these days? The ones that look like vertical lawn mowers & turn trees into mulch.

Give me the cheapest seats in coach and let the dome sit empty!If steam is running, im not even buying a ticket, im chasing all day long.

Be happy that there is a group working to maintain these efforts rather than be snarky. Look into their history and their about us profile and you might understand this better.
Maybe someone should start a club dedicated to saving Maine Central locomotives, and in the spirit of confusing everyone, call it the 4266 Club.
