Looks like they are looking to get involved in a legal manner.

That's just CYA. BSRR obviously has some kind of agreement with P&W, this is in case G&W tries to renege for some reason: "we know you have an agreement with P&W, but our insurance carrier doesn't want us to allow passenger service"

Wow it's a bloodbath! And seems like GWI is ignoring people like BSRC and at least two Unions!

I just swallowed my tongue! :D

Some tech weenie is probably already getting fired for the server issue haha - and now that (I totally missed it earlier).

Clearly they spend more on lawyers than on MIS!

There is progress on the website. They even spelled railroad correctly.

The Boston Surface RR web site doesn't have a lot of content - perhaps their FAQ page is the most telling: http://www.bsrc.com/faqs/

Classic. Did they move into "1 Depot Square, Woonsocket RI" a year ago? Count the number of cars in the parking lot, lol
