Unfortunately, some kids got bored this weekend and visited MNGRR during the overnight hours...

What the heck is wrong with kids today! Don't they have anything to do. I am very sorry for the situation that MNGRR has found itself, would they accept donations specifically for the cars?

At least it doesn't sound like they set any cars on fire. That's how Edaville lost B&SR coach 17 (the 'Elthea') back in 1985 I think -- teenage arsonists.

I'm hoping the move to Gray will mean better protection for the rolling stock, from weather and vandalism both.

I hope the vandals are apprehended and required to make some form of restitution.  There should be consequences.

My two cents ...
