They only saw the dollar signs, either out of necessity in the state budget, or a requirement by state law (verbiage to the effect of "must be sold to the highest bidder"). I did get a chuckle out of the state getting an assurance from A&K they intended to continue running trains, only to have them file the papers the day after the purchase. The more and more A&K keeps this up, you'd think their reputation would precede them with agencies truly interested in maintaining rail service.
