Here's another "moving to the area" question, whatever happened to using the C&I line to make the Rexis branch of the Ghost Town Trail a looping trail? Isn't that the point of the bypass over 422 in Belsano?

Not really. Train travel was point A to Point B. C&I connected New York Central to PRR. The CandI Trail will begin in Recloc at the PRR Junction, travel to Nanty Glo, Expidit, Belsano Junction (the over-pass), Edwards SawMill, Reagon's Junction (a switchback), and right to Colver and left towards Rexis.
B. Dawson Coleman of Lebanon and John Heisley Weaver of Williamsport were the industrailists who made this happen.
These rail lines are owned by the federal government. The Grahamn-Rudman Act of 1988, allows citizens to reclaim unsused federal property.
It still belongs to the government. Should rail travel ever restart, you will not be allowed to walk there.
The Rails-To-Trails Project is nation-wide. I agree, that a looping trail would be fine. So would a looping sled-ride or kyak trip.
I urge you to explore our history and the outdoors.
Many folk who use Ghost Town Trail from Ebensburg, leave a truck in Nanty Glo for their bikes (Its down hill to Nanty Glo).
