It would have been nice if this group gave credit to the guy who started the effort and got the group off the ground (yea, I know there were 3 founders, but one guy did the lions share of the work to make it happen) The guy was the groups first President and I think he did a great job getting the group up and running.

Also; the formal dinner was attended by 60 people and was first class which was also put together by the first President.
I went to that dinner and felt it was better than anything the group has done since.

The group has very little to show for it efforts and very short on cash to do much else. They should have waited to have this Grand opening until next year which would have have given them more time to get equipment such as a complete locomotive and more displays.
I think people will be expecting more than they get when they see this museum.

Price Choppers Gas program was a scam to the consumer. All they did was to shift saving from the groceries to the gas pump. So in the end, you were NOT saving any money.
A trip RIP-OFF!

The entire Gas program was full of gas to begin with. So what they are admitting now is that they raised prices to offset the savings you got at the pump....A rip off plain and simple.
If they kept the prices low while offering the gas discount, that would have been true savings for the consumer.
In the end, shoppers did not save any money.

They should expand the law and say that the car they (driver) used in DWI be impounded and put up for Auction. Use the money to help pay the victims or their family's of these crimes.

I agree that we should keep the oil for ourselves.Let China get thiee oil overseas.
To Gina99: The railroads Can handle this oil. They have the means of expanding so that would create permanent jobs to start with. More tank cars and locomotives which in turn would cause suppliers of these products to hire more people. Plus at the oil terminals, they can expand their operations which means even more permanent jobs. All this with a small impact on the environment as the tracks are already in place unlike a pipeline which would tear up millions of acres of land during construction.The construction of a pipeline is temporary. Just look at the Alaskan pipeline.
The pipeline is a poor long term solution to both Job Creation as well as the environment.

There is no need for the pipeline as the Nations freight Railroads could haul this oil saving both the expense of building it but also saving the environment from damage.
It is a real shame that the Republicans are out for the own gain once again and forced the President into a corner over this.

"Its new home was behind the site of a museum that will showcase the history of the former company that built 60,000 trains during its lifetime."

If these clowns are going to have a museum, they can start by get their facts straight.
ALCO built over 75,000 steam locomotives and over 25,000 diesel plus electric locomotives over their lifetime.
