Ok, I can usually figure out what someone means, but this response has me stumped.  I am not picking or anything, I just simply can't tell if you really excited about this or terrible upset/disappointed.

I think this is great news, and believe BobE thinks so too, though he can speak for himself, of course.

I originally heard this also, but last week I heard from an unreliable source that Tom's brother is going to own it and his wife is going to run it. This would be the brother ( a railfan) from St. Louis, Mo. If that is true, than my only concern would be the  age of said brother and how long before it ends up changing hands again.

Bueno, with a substitute for an expletive inserted in the middle.  Bueno, of course, meaning good.

Alex Lang and Wife now owning it is completely true. Other rumors are now false.

Thanks everyone, the business officially changed hands yesterday. It is an honor to carry Tom Davis' torch forward.  (Also, very big shoes to fill). 
We have an on-site manager, my wife and I are not in a position to move to Cresson.  Some changes are planned to update things and make things a bit more comfortable. 
While there's a lot of work yet to do, we are accepting reservations.  Online booking and credit card acceptance are in the near future.

Appreciate all of the comments and support!
-J. Alex Lang & family

PS - we are looking into doing a room or two with A/C as a possibility once things "get going"

Congratulations Alex! You’re the guy that first told me about the Station Inn back around 2000. I’m glad to hear it’s in good hands!

Congratulations, I am glad that the Station Inn is in your hands. There could not be a better owner who is a railfan and have stayed so many times there.

Thank you for the update. As I said it was from an unreliable source. I look forward to my current reservation in August.

Three Cheers for Alex & Family...Kept a great tradition alive that Tom started in 1995. 
A great day for Railfans everywhere!

Most excellent news.
I must ask if Sandi is still there?

Re: The Station Inn..Great News

Good to hear A/C is being considered, and thank you for answering... To be honest, that's the big reason I've never stayed there, because for me no air con is a deal-breaker... I would 100% book a room there in future if it had A/C...

Sandy has retired a couple of years ago and still lives in Cresson.
About the AC that a lot of people talk about---OK it can sometimes get hot in the summer months, but it is a mountain top--it cools off very quickly at night. There are ceiling fans in every room too. IMO, AC is only needed rarely, and only a few days worth in both July & August.
Book a room after looking at the 10 day forecast in July & August & time a good weather pattern---OR--- book a room in the Spring or Fall OR Winter.(Lots of snow & Chilly & Great Photo Ops & No crowds)
After all---The trains run 24/7, 365 days a year.....

Good news!  And, the Railstream.com free camera is still up and running. Good, close up views of traffic to or from Horseshoe Curve.
