Krieghund: meat0918: Doesn't the easement still exist, i.e. the feds can change it back to a rail with no red tape?Yep, and I'm sure we'll eventually see a story on Fark about someone that's upset because they bought a nice house next to a trail and now the feds are turning it into a railroad.
buzzcut73: I say fark it. We need more rail in this country anyway, maybe the feds should just start laying new track along these disputed easements, and the NIMBYs can listen to freight traffic rolling by instead of having to look at somebody on a bicycle once in a while.
Meatschool: And where was the photo you posted upthread taken?
fireclown: Meatschool: And where was the photo you posted upthread taken?I'm not sure, it isn't mine. But my GIS was for Harpers Ferry, and it kind of looks like the trail surface near Whites Ferry.I think San Mar does a few rides a year. They are also super cool about letting the Cumberland Valley Cycle Club use their parking lot for the annual century haven't ridden my bike yet this year, but at least my orthopedic surgeon will be able to retire early ride every year.

I used to work in a shop, and the week before TOSRV, we would get a glut of bikes that had dust on them from the year before, and wide eyed people excited about the ride this year. Always felt like repacking their hubs with sand to kill their ride a mile in just so they didn't hurt themselves and tie up the SAG wagons.
zez: FTA: the katy trail winds through cities in Texas, Oklahoma, and Missourino it doesn't, it doesn't even make it across the state
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: fireclown: While we're here, is there a good trail network to get me from Maryland/south PA to Columbus OH?/idly planning future trips.I don't know about to Columbus, but the Great Allegheny Passage and the C&O canal trail will get you from DC to Pittsburgh.
fireclown: Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: fireclown: I did that ride this summer, three nonconsecutive days.I want to do that one of these days, but I'm not a strong enough rider for that kind of endurance. It is nice, however, to know that the infrastructure is available to me, should I choose.Go do the silly thing. It doesn't matter how many trips it takes, and they will get longer. I did the C+O with a friend of mine who could only manage 20 mile days at the start of the summer.
patrick767: wxboy: patrick767: Nabb1: Welcome to first year property law. Today we will discuss the basics of easements.People can't be glad they don't have farking trains going through instead, for which they'd receive zero compensation? No, they've gotta sue.If I've got an open-and-shut case for being paid an easy few thousand dollars, I'm suing to get it.Must be nice to not give a damn if you deserve compensation. Gimme gimme!

ArkAngel: Me and my dad once rode the entire length of that. I miss those days
