Bike Path Losses
Loss of Rail Converting the West track to a bike path would force all train traffic to run on the East track.
Loss of ability to 'Run-a-Round' The trains currently use the west track when they do a 'run-a-round'. That occurs when the engine is uncoupled and sent up the west track to connect to the other end of the train.

The trains would need to either

  • have an engine at both ends of their consist or
  • to back into the station.
