As Alan most eloquently stated: VOLUNTEERS. Another item to throw the proverbial monkey wrench [either right handed or left handed] to Rail Excursions be it Steam or Diesel: INSURANCE. If the right of way isn't privately owned the Class 1 Railroads are difficult if not impossible to deal with as I understand.

Union Pacific runs a few Steam Excursions yes, however they own the Railroad and Locomotive(s).

On the JBS front a note in the latest issue of the Waterways Journal from the CO Owner took great exception of the thought that the boat was for sale! It's worth a read in the WJ, 'nuff said.

Punch my ticket for a cruise on the M/V Jim's Dream!
