Cranky North Carolineans

Wayne, those North Carolineans who are going to trespass on the branch line being re-opened are really a bunch of NIMBYs aren't they?

[Moderator's warning]
I'm going to watch this topic carefully. Politics are not usually discussed here unless they related directly to railroads and/or preservation. Be nice and respectful (unlike many "occupiers".)

Don't you worry about me, Ed. I'm a totally neutral reporter in this particular issue. It was only of interest because it involved a railroad and because the opposition hijacked the "occupy" idea. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Like the forum most occupiers are nice and respectful.

Here's a link to the original story in the Gaston Gazette in Gatsonia, NC. http://www.gastongazette.com/articles/occupy-62076--.html I picked it up last week and wrote a Newswire brief for Trains.

Enjoy.

Cheers -- Wayne

Wow. Sounds like an opportunity for an officer to make an appearance and pass out some trespassing notices.
