We do plan to expand west at some point, however we are waiting on DOT to rebuild the intersection at the glass shop where route 179 intersects 1A. We expect this to begin sometime next year. We also have to do repair work on the Union River Bridge. We expect to begin that project soon, as well. Once these projects are done we can begin to make a serious effort to go west.
Just to clarify one point, we have been selling our own tickets now for about 3 years. Also, the only washouts we had recently were west of Bagaduce Road, but were repaired.
Last year we added a "Pumpkin Train" which turned out to be very successful, so this year we ran 4 Pumpkin trains and all 4 sold out. We are looking into other special event trains as well.
All in all we feel we had a good season ridership wise and maintenance wise, too.
