This ran steam, which we are getting in the summer.

Fair enough. I shall pay another visit when this happens.

Now to electrify the line would costs thousands. Somthing we the
society or owners can't afford to do it. As well it's too dangerous

Well you shouldn't have de-electrified it in the first place then

to run electrification on the line for the general public.

I don't see why it would be too dangerous. Would people start running
around on the track just because the lines now run by EOR and not LU?

Really people don't want to go on an old LU train but would rather go
on a steam train. I do believe, that there is not one preserved line

the country, that uses electrified lines.

Others have answered that point.
