    ... line freight operations and two other scenics) has notions/aspiration/dreams of reconnecting Cass with Durbin and in another direction, with Elkins; in both cases, with rail, sleepers and roadbed that will support a "track speed" (speed limit) of perhaps 40-50 mph (FWIW, many -- perhaps 'most'.scenic operations run in the 7 - 15 mph range). Then the plan is reputed to be reconnecting a final leg -- an old WVRR or C&O line between Durbin ...
