Imagine what a train to the big bad city would do. Lay some model railroad track along the trail for irony's sake. Tell anyone who asks "I'm laying the track for upcoming passenger service." You could also dress like a railroad hobo every time you walk the trail, maybe sit at one of the stations day and night and say that you're waiting for the train to come back. Do something that will make people laugh and maybe think, not react negatively.glennk419 wrote:Just wait until the beer bottles, WaWa coffee cups and Burger King wrappers start littering Mr. Stern's lawn. How GREEN is that?I say we get together and purposely litter the line. That goes against my princple, but it certainly makes a statement.
In the meantime, let's petition for the Newtown Dinky! Local from Newtown to the metropolis of Bethayres, Pennsylvania with connections to the R3! No Abington NIMBYs bothered, no diamond crossing, no cut-off, just a curve away from the old ROW to just across Huntingdon Pike from the Bethayres station!
