I read the article linked, about another state where they are storing cars, the anti-storage group pestered the owner of the cars, who requested the railroad move the cars (where nobody would complain). Then the railroad just brought in other cars from someone else to store. I think that is brilliant!

Governor Cuomo is making statements with absolutely no grasp on the facts. Clearly he is on the side of the trail nuts since he is strongly in favor of tearing up the tracks between Tupper Lake and Lake Placid.


The leader of the trail nuts in the Adirondack Scenic RR debacle is a *huge* Cuomo supporter and Financial contributor. The only trail that is solid in that case is the money trail.
