I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about light rail in our area again lately. And while someone ALWAYS brings it up at every public meeting I attend, someone else at the same meeting always shoots it down for the same two reasons; the expense involved and the lack of density to support it in our area.

As this article from Transportation Issues Daily points out though, America’s transcontinental railroads were built ahead of demand; should we be doing the same with passenger rail?

Read the article and give me your thoughts.
