Monday, December 13, 2004 Townships vs. County - Abandoned Rail Line Becomes Political Football:

A battle over who controls the right of way of a 23 mile Enola Low Grade Corridor in Lancaster County has put plans for a rail trail on hold. The strange part is that Lancaster County and the municipalities say they want a rail trail. The dispute is over eminent domain, the counties have tried to take control of the 100 foot wide abandoned corridor while the municipalities have signed an agreement for a 30 foot wide corridor.
