Rail or Trail or “First-world Problem”?
All the “very cool, passionate, community-minded people” on both sides seem to have ignored a third-option – Rail-biking.
Richard B. did this back in the 90’s – A Ride on the Adirondack Railway.
Non-motorized Re-Use. Leave the tracks. Get rid of the train. A healthy, cost-efficient, and non-polluting activity.
As far as I can tell from my very brief research, Lake Placid, NY to Remsen, NY could be the longest Rail-biking trip in the world. Ride On!
Enjoy these Rail-biking videos.
Anyway, don’t do this here – you could get injured or die.
It might be illegal too, you could get arrested.
