A New Blog for Supporting Rail Transit in Maine

A good friend and colleague recommended that we start a blog about revitalization of railway corridors. Although this is Maine-based, rail corridors, like the weather, do not begin or end at borders. Our purpose is a strong network of passenger rail transit services connecting our communities, as an alternative transportation choice.

More later.

Have a nice day

    Good Start, funny, out here L.A. Had one of the best mass transit systems in the country, only to rip out the tracks to pave them over for the millions of cars that now clog our cities in and around L.A. county. Coincidentally they just raised our taxes another 1/2 % to pay to retrack several new areas to link the outer cities with L.A. Long overdue. Long Beach put in a light rail system that works well. Yes, they are still hitting cars that try to drive around the "silly" barriers but overall it's a great way to travel. We are a car oriented city and county, like the song says,” nobody walks in L.A. " But it's high time we start rethinking that one. Gotta start somewhere.
    Keep up the good work, Pete
