    Now why didn't anyone else think of that one! So easy, steam up a second loco do a FTR, roster a loco crew, get a support crew together from possibly all points of the compass. All within 48 hours or less. At least you probably provide some...

    Therein lies the problem. As a journalist, I would expect you to gather all the facts before posting something. That old tale of "if you have nothing good to say, don't say anything" rings true in this case.
