Not a steam engine...a steam engine replica. Article states it will be oil-driven.

WOW how progressive! How about a transit line on that right of way? Maybe some freight service at night? How about instead of being a bedroom community we get some industries and dollars back in York County!! Love the rail trail but I can't ride my bike to work.

Wonderful. Another great idea that has failed in the past. At least the genius' behind this one realize it will be a "not for profit" business; but how long will it continue to receive support?
How in one post you can criticize something for failing in the past and in the next post you bring up the Stewartstown Railroad? If I recall I believe that FAILED too. Just another drunk from the southern end if the county.

I understand it is NOT a coal burning locomotive, but runs on oil. Has anyone contacted New Freedom--they have some type of ordinance against storing rolling stock, etc.? Instead of the county working to save real history (Stewartstown), they instead support artificial history! Sad As for the CCR--they've been talking now for at least three years--nothing has happened. If they had the money, they could have done something already.

If you only knew :-) The CCR is laughing at your comment right now. If you have ever dealt with putting together a railroad, you would at least have some respect for all the hard work they have done and sleepless nights they have put in. Patience is a virtue, just wait a little more.

I just realized, if you take the C off CCR...it becomes Odorus Creek Railway.

A steam locomotive!!!! Wow! This will revolutionize travel. No longer will I have to use my covered wagon.

I did hear a rumor that they are working a horseless carriage.

Get with the program, folks
How many of you bitc- about all of the noise from juiced up cars, motorycycles and trucks? To me, that's a lot worse than an occasional train coming down the tracks. Many people love to hear the romance of train sounds.
Why are so many people against everything? Why do we have so many cry babies anymore in our country?

Truth: Its shocking to me the things people will waste good money on. Roads in Hanover wreak you car, people going hungry, losing their homes, losing their cars, people can't afford to fix broken windows in their home, town square looks like a homeless shelter and a border crossing, closed store fronts from one end of town to the other but yes,,,YES lets throw money at a "Steam" train that will not haul freight ever again. People in Hanover can be so stupid sometimes.

The other trail users are not going to like getting steamed and covered in soot. How is this thing going to pass the clean air requirements of the EPA?
