Well, Mr. Richard Anderson (aka former owner of Delta Airlines), you must be really proud yourself on how beautifully smart you are to make Amtrak a GREAT company to do all the AWESOME shit you'll bring to Donald Trump and ALL of America without the help of the steam engines from now on. Hope you have a pleasant day living on the streets when a million of angry mobs will come straight towards you and make you decide to be fired or re-sign the new rules.
Goodbye and good luck! ^_^

Just kidding, everyone. lol

In all seriousness:
I don't know who this guy is and I don't wanna get myself involved into this crap. Neither do I know what his stupid decision to ban all steam trains for excursions (not completely all) all across America. My only guess know it... Money.
But, as a Canadian, I should know better than get myself sucked in because of him. I mean true what he did was offensive not just America but all across worldwide as well. Just imagine how much it affects the feelings of other folks who will come up the same idea to ban all these beautiful giants who are inspirational to all original owners who have operated them in the past 19th and 20th Century and I'm very grateful to have learn more about railway/railroad histories.

Not much I can do to help America out much. But I'm more than happy to keep spreading the word and let worldwide know what's been going on and whether or not they think it's a good thing or a bad thing (Mostly). After all, even if Anderson tries to erase history and shove his boring old pride and glory down our throats to make us accept him as new president of Amtrak, I doubt he's ever gonna last much longer to hold back the steamers forever. It'll be his ass once America takes care of him. Unless he's smart enough to get away with everything, like Hunter Harrison did before his death (not Anderson), then we'll keep on praying and hoping to God that Anderson changes his mind and realizes what he has done not only to offend the railfans but also the company as well.

In conclusion:
I hope this will help those who are suffering through this drama bullshit in America (especially my artwork lol) remain strong and brave to find a way to bring back history so that someday, for me, I will come right down to some states and admire the beauty of these locomotives until then.

Thank you all for reading this and I hope you all have a good day and keep being awesome and true!

While we maybe angry at this, Amtrak does have a good reason on why they did it. I mean, would you want 4449, 261, or 611 to be involved in a crash on any of the Amtrak routes?

I was actually thinking the same thing, too.
Maybe that's why Anderson had to stop this before more accidents accured.
So I guess it might be time for America to replace the old tracks with new ones.

Exactly. At least there can be some excursions on the BNSF which has a better track record than Amtrak.

Hopefully, they'll take care of that. Maybe not but it's just my opinion.
