Thanks to Hot Water we can see the absurdity of the current manager of the UP Steam program, how sad.I feel happy that I had the oppurtinity to ride behing 3985 and 844 while they were running,we may never get the Chance again.
The only "absurdity" here is that one man's personal vendetta continues to be allowed to be posted to this day!
I have confidence that if the UP wants to run 3985 & 844 again, they will. What you really need to worry about is the UP hierarchy being invaded by the kind of people that don't like steam.
I am sitting back waiting to see if there is enough meat on a cr
ow for more than one person to eat.
The Steam program has got to show a real payoff. It has got to show a relivence. UP management is no longer going to allow money to be flushed down a steam restoration toilet. Back in the Steve Lee era it did totally justify its existence as a PR tool. It stopped doing that right after the management change. It went from being a functioning viable steam program to a invisible steam shop. That is what is going to kill the UP steam Program in the end. I personally already think its to late. The lack of presence has already killed it.
