Fuel and insurance are probably the biggest hits in the budget. Perhaps there is some sort of maintenance issue that has arisen too, but I doubt that.
Since this is not a common carrier, at least I don't think it is, does abandonment require any sort of approval?
Also, I think we need to organize a railfest here as a sendoff. This weekend I think is open for me, and the next may work even better. What say ye, board members?
