10329RE: [FJGRailroad] Train service linking Binghamton, Utica derailed
- Jul 8 11:52 AMI think Mark's got computer problems and is off-line...
Also, I didn't mean to imply that it would be free to run
any sort of passenger line, but liked the idea of a mixed
train. How long has it been since a railroad ran a mixed
train? A long time I think. The FJG gave it up in the
50's. Wouldn't it cost less to run a mixed train as opposed
to a sole passenger run? Also, running a RDC has to be
a little more economical that a string of coaches, right?
