Last time I checked, RP.net isn't the ONLY place quality rail photography is hosted.

Sometimes however, especially in governmental processes, the squeaky wheel gets the oil. If RBMN raises enough hell about it, draws enough public attention, it might just shame the PNRRA enough to...

You haven't scouted it very well if you feel that way. The B-line is arguably one of the more scenic routes in Virginia. Lots of sharp, superelevated curves, bridges, and plenty of crossings to work...

To put a railroad twist on it, I'd say CONRAIL is an example of the Gov't doing it right. AMTRAK is another example of longevity under government control, albeit not in the greatest financial state....
