who is "chamachoochoo" and why would they be hosting the pages? There's nothing on CSX's website yet, that I can find anyway.

Actually, it's more like the other way around, as CSX has been doing this since the mid-1980's and it's UP that has followed suit. However, I should point out that CSX in the past has only asked for a $1 per year licensing fee, AFAIK.

Supporters of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad (volunteers there actually (as far as I know)) This guy is hosting the pages as a way for the rypn folks to see the info. I believe this person also handles the shop updates for the work thats being done there on the C&T premises.

It looks to me to be more than a dollar but then we might as well get used to it as all the roads will be doing this. Just the way life is now days Marty Hall

Who the hell cares what the shithouse US roads do. So CSX follows the UP, so what. They will all follow suit before long. Fuck the US roads, for that matter, fuck the US and you can throw Canada in that too. If you had any brains in those countries you would all model, or shall I say attempt to model, free lance roads and then you wouldn't have to pay any greedy fees.

A) Create your own named line and custom decal it.
B) Pick a line that was so short and absorbed into two thers before it got to the CP that no one cares about it's licencing.

I'd rather pay the licensing fee and have prototype cars.

Since we do model railroads, maybe following Lionel's example (Lionel Lines) might be a good idea. How about Gorre and Daphetid, Alleghany Midland, V&O, Ohio Southern, etc cars pulled by your private road motive power -- perhaps a war bonnet Tucumcari Alco A-B-B-A unit. Or, in my case, a Virginia Tidewater and Piedmont 2-6-6-6. Gene ABV61-1043.001.HCB
