All's well, Joe. I think next week will be a good time to start easing back into some railfanning around here. Palmetto is a sharp scheme. I've hit it a few times on previous visits. There is...

Not for nothing, but Pennsylvania does have one of the most generous shortline grant programs of any state. Much of what the Reading & Northern is doing to expand service comes from state grants.
