Why can't Pennsylvania do likewise with the East Broad Top???
PA couldn't even save a bridge until it was too late and killed a RR because of their exemplary reactionary habits to everything instead of being proactive. But hey, we have a beautiful viewing platform now that raises next to nothing for income for the Commonwealth vs. an operating railroad raising tax income from selling passenger tickets to ride across said Commonwealth owned bridge and souvenirs on top of the freight revenue and employee income taxes that they were generating.
