Neither the Ga Northeastern nor the Blue Ridge Scenic actually own motorcars, but there are a sizable number people involved with the Blue Ridge Scenic who own them.
They run 1 or 2 "work trips" a year for track cleanup (with the RR's permission, of course, and as a NARCOA approved trip) to keep things looking pretty for the passengers on the train.
As an aside ... anyone have a clue how some of the stuff found trackside ever manages to actually GET trackside?
I mean seriously - how does an entire stove/cooktop end up in the middle of the N.Ga woods next to train tracks in the middle of nowhere?
Or (and no, I'm not kidding) a stainless steel kitchen sink?
