    You may be familiar with the Knox and Kane Railroad in Pennsylvania. You may also know that over a year ago, a tornado strick and blew down one of the largest bridges in the United States: the Kinzua Bridge. Now that an integral part of the line is gone, excursions have to stop at the bridge and then turn around. They can't use the steamers since they are difficult to run in reverse. The lack of use of the steamers has caused a drastic drop in ridership, and the line doesn't have the funds to restore such a large and beautiful bridge, and now the line is officially dying.
    Dear rich railroaders:
    STEP UP TO THE PLATE! SOMEBODY BUY THE LINE!
