JEWETT – Railroad enthusiasts are continuing their campaign to retain the tracks between Mt. Jewett and the Kinzua Bridge State Park. If the tracks stay in place, the railroad buffs are hoping a steam train again could carry tourists between Mt. Jewett and the park, a distance of 3.4 miles. The idea of retaining the tracks surfaced last month at a meeting of an informal group seeking to build support for a trail between Mt. Jewett and the park. The route for the proposed trail is over the corridor of the defunct Knox and Kane Railroad. A discussion on retention of the tracks dominated talk Wednesday at another meeting of the trail development group at the Mt.
