The Strasburg trains look dumb with the tender leading half of the trip. Build a wye and use the turntable.

611 is cool but skip a year or 2 and use that money for a wye next to Amtrak. Long term investment. Backwards nonsense is my only complaint.

The Chattanooga choo choo is better. They do it right.
