Using this very old and in disrepair Railway is very foolish and dangerous to the Arkansas river and surrounding communities on it's path. It has not been used in many many years and has not been kept up in maintenance whatsoever. Many heavy trucks have crossed this railway without permission or authorization because it has not been monitored and maintained by anyone. Using it for any reason would be very foolhardy and very dangerous in every way. Any Official approving this would be open to a tremendous liability because it unhas proposed this surely does not know anything about the zero maintenance it has received in many many year. It is truly a Dangerous Proposition to the Arkansas River and to anyone along its pathway to be used at all! It would take a tremendous amount of resources to bring it back to a viable Railway.-Paul Martin, Salida, Colorado
