Tackling the Headlines 65
Critics target $58M state deal for Amtrak rail cars
Take: The brouhaha over which type of cars should be used is much better than whether any new cars should be used at all (*ahem* Wisconsin). Hopefully, the idled Talgos will not go the way of the Turboliners. The loser should be offering their service to Indiana for expanded Hoosier State service.
Leaders Break Ground On New Niagara Falls Train Station
Take: The new station will look much better than the existing one. It will also be a great welcome for Canadian travelers.
More delays for the D.C. Streetcar
Take: What a mess! I know that the nation's capital hasn't had any streetcars since 1962, but D.C. residents may end up with limited streetcar service due to the extremely high amount of incompetence.
