 Post subject: C&TS FRA Problem
PostPosted: Sun Nov 15, 1998 12:36 am 

News reports out of CBS affiliate KRQE in Albequerque N.M. states that the FRA has declared unsafe locomotives # 463 & 497. Many ticket holders were turned away due to a scheduled double header. When the train from Chama left it was 3 hours late. This leaves only 2 steamers available for C&TS I believe. Not a good thing during the busy tourist season. George Bartholomew has his hands full now. <br>

Jeff:<p>Did you see the broadcast in question? If so, could you answer a few questions, as some of the facts are in dispute.<p>1. The main point of disagreement is who initiated the removal from service of Nos. 463 and 497. My source says the FRA did; the railroad says it did. Did the report explicitly say the FRA took the engines out?<p>2. Were any track violations referenced?<p>Thanks.<p>JAC

I understand that steam gurus Dan Ranger and Steven Butler are making an extended visit to CATS this month to get them up and running again. <p>Dave<br>
