Not only would I ride the train right now, but Id bring my kids.
Otd be great.
The wreck was a fluke thing.
That train has had a lot of miles on it with no issues.
I have full faith in sdc fixing it, and doing it quick.
If people dont want to ride, then dont.
Whatever happened to personal responsibility?
Small wonder our lives have so little of God in them, when we come in touch with so little that God has made.

Yeah it's going to be awhile. Let's hope we have a train next spring.

Not sure you how you equate personal responsability with negligance or improper maintenance or lack of safety standards ? Personal responsibility goes out the window when things are not your fault. Are you saying the people on the train were responsible ?

That being said I will ride it again after the cause is found and corrected. Hopefully soon but whatever it takes to make it safe.

The Park is setting up a temporary location for the Story of Christmas told by Grandfather at the Tom & Hucks Stage near the RiverBlast Ride in the coming week per the train employees. This probably means the train will be a while but at least the Christmas story survives.

I too have heard the rumor about putting "grandpa" on the the Tom and Huck stage.  But in the meantime, you can sometimes find "grandpa" sitting on the bench in front of the train depot (or one of the conductors standing nearby); and he is happy to tell you the Christmas story if you ask him. I got to hear it myself this past Sunday.  It was really special even without the lights and music.

Also, I heard that the investigation into the train accident has been completed, but they haven't released the results to the public yet.  So, hopefully we will hear something soon.

I have a bad feeling the cause is going to be related specifically to 504. Not that there is a problem with the engine but simply the forces on the cars being a little different due to the tender causing the string lining that happened to the cars.
