I'd recommend watching the video of the ride I took on the Lilly Belle on my birthday. The CM who rode with me gave me a history of the Lilly Belle as well as explained in detail the vanadalism that occured prior to the refurb causing them to implement the rule that neccesitates a CM riding in the car whenever a guest does.
That is really sad that they have to go to lengths to make sure people are not disrespectful. I am glad they brought the Lilly Belle back to her full glory but it makes me very upset to know there are people out there who have no respect for incredible pieces of history like this.
It is really sad that they have to go to those lengths. Such a lack of respect for others property these days. *sigh* What is the world coming to? At least the Lilly Belle is still around. Thanks to Matt Ouimet for bringing it back.
Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter
