    And a few with old SI trains including a steam engine, SI steamers were exactly like B&O since they were the parent company, just one detail was changed. Photos in the linked article.

    Nice pictures. That would make an interesting route in Trainz someday.

    Has they borough considered light rail for the abandoned route, or did they go with, gasp, buses rapid transit which stinks?

    Sorry for late reply, I don't get around to forums for socializing like I used to.
    They are actually doing both due to cost. They have finally, after years of study and a lot of spending, decided on BRT for now with planned addition of Light Rail at some point plus there have been plans and requests for light rail on the west shore. Problem is it now gets passed over for funding from the MTA.
