Unfortunate, but not entirely surprising. As is the nature of such things, the origin of the fire will likely never be understood with complete assurance. The railroad must now navigate the legal world in which it finds itself entwined - I wish them luck and send goodwill.

This seems a reasonable time to note that our ability to play with and enjoy coal-fired steam locomotives in the mountains is very much dependent upon good relations with our neighbors. In an ever-changing and more diverse world, we must be good stewards of steam railroading and demonstrate due diligence in our participation. Good PR is a must, from both the business and railfan sides. Rather than getting upset at those who are, ahem, fiery towards the railroad, and shutting them out or insulting them - let's change the dialog to a constructive one describing the things we know the railroad is doing to mitigate damage to the communities they operate in. And let's be understanding of their desire to have nice forests, regardless of whether or not they actually support intelligent forest management. Steam railroading is a niche interest and industry, and we can't afford to have the world angry at us.

I'm merely a casual observer and enthusiast, but consideration, thoughtfulness, compromise, and kindness strike me as key elements to remember as summers get warmer and drier.
