For those of us who haven't been keeping up with the unfolding story of this poor branch line, How many miles are going to be kept rail and usable for current/future use of the CMRR?

Currently we are allowed to use the track from MP 3.63 to MP 8.33. We have been told that we may be allowed to extend that to MP 10.01. West of MP 10.01 the track has been lifted, though we will rebuild to MP 11.1 if ever allowed. EH
