    I've had a few invites to join friends at Cassandra but I've turned them down. That place seems a little crowded for my tastes. (And closing at night is a real bummer. That's when the best action can usually be had!) Besides, better trains and scenery can be had on the CSX line a few hours south. ;)

    You got some cool photos, anyway. I always love looking at Conrail units on their home territory! :cool:
