From the Daily Freeman:

From the following comments section, from a user with the name, "In The Middle:"

Quote:
Personally -

If Ulster County builds it my wife and I will ride our bicycles on it many times every year.

As for a rail train track. My wife and I "may" take our grandchildren once on the train and that will be all.

Maybe all those train enthusiasts will be happy running a model O Gauge train chugging along the hiking and bicycle path. I am sure the folks hiking and riding their bicycles would appreciate the nostalgia of a model train next to the path chugging along, which would be one of a kind and make for great photo opportunities.


I'll make no other comment here.

George could use additional qualified train crew for the move. We also plan to drain the 407's coolant systems, so additional volunteers are needed for that purpose as well.
