You might have to be careful that you get what you wish for.
Doesn't VA have 3 railroad/transportation museums: Roanoke, Richmond,
Norfolk? More investment by the state just might be in Richmond at the
detriment of Roanoke.
I'll have to get out my checkbook to support the Roanoke end.
OK: Far West Catonsville
OR: Greater Oella

I am pleased to hear that Wick has pledged support for VMT. I now only wish
that VMT would turn its focus to being a RAILROAD museum first and
forermost. I believe that would be more of a tourist draw.
It would also be nice to see our Commonwealth sign on and help some too.
North Carolina's museum in Spencer is a good example of what can be done.
There's no reason we can't do the same or better in Virginia. But, in order
to do that, it takes funds, a vision, and people willing to work together to
reach that goal. It's been done before, and it would be nice to see it done
again. As a citizen of Virginia, and I'm willing to do my part, whatever
that may be.
