I heard from a former employee, and take this with a grain of salt,that the owner signed an abandonment form (whatever that is) so it may be up for auction soon

Dear Knox and Kane Railroad,

I have heard about what happened to your railroad and I am very sorry. I realized that #1, you had a fire in the roundhouse and #2, an F-1 tornado tore the Kinzua Bridge out. I also heared that you stopped operating for a long time. Will you go back in service soon? I think that you should do frieght service and make money to start the railroad back up and rebuild your engines and fix the Kinzua Bridge. You would probably get your trains running again, but it take many more years to rebuild the bridge. Why don't you just get help from the construction site? If you try to make enough money, or perhaps work harder, you could start back up. Whatever you do, don't turn the track into a Rails to Trails bike path! I hope you start back up soon!

Yours, Erich Diebold

rails to trails is the only way it should be. It would benefit the towns and bring more people to them rather than the train company anymore.
