Another rail story, from Wisconsin, too. And note there are detractors of the railroad as well.

From the International Snowmobile Congress meeting in Colorado:

This is mixed news. More and more rail lines are coming back to life, even some that were always secondary routes. Against this, we are seeing increasing opposition to rail service in some places. This includes Florida, where a private railroad has proposed reentering passenger service. Unfortunately, a lot of people are skeptical of the railroad and its management.

Then there's this group that wants to rip out an existing, though not all active, railroad for a snowmobile trail.

The great, great irony is that this group, which claims it has more economic impact than the railroad, is in a business that has seen the sales of snowmobiles decline by 66% (!) in the last 16 years!
