      A friend just received a note from an elderly lady in New Hampshire which stated that this will be the last year that this railroad will be using coal fired locomotives. Does anyone know what is going on here? Are they going to abandon steam locomotives? Are they going to diesels? Are they keeping steam but switching to oil or propane to fire them? Tampering with this railroad could ruin its historic value. Coal has been used for over a hundred years and the environment has not been ruined because of it. If the enviros are the ones who are pushing this change, they should be overridden by the nation's train buffs.
