Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #450 – Jan 5, 2017



Cycling is recycling, and abandonments are not abandonments. The conversion program must be considered a transportation program to preserve railroad right-of-ways for the future reactivation of rail service. Today we will have our trails, but tomorrow we will once again have our rails.

—GLENN TIEDT, From Rails to Trails and Back Again: A Look at the Conversion Program, Parks & Recreation, 1980
