Many fans see PR value in running steam excursions, but some railroad CEOs can't be bothered. Were you around when Southern, D&H and Chessie were hotbeds of steam activity? Management changed, and the fires were dropped.
We have been lucky with Union Pacific, but how many know that 844/8444 made what was billed as a "last run" decades ago [the "Blizzard on Sherman Hill" trip]? Thankfully, someone must have convinced the CEO to change his mind regarding steam.
