Rails to Trails
I love rails to trails. It's a great idea and opens up good space for running. However there is one caveat. If you ever want to have a transit line back in the corridor where there will be a rails with trails project, don't ever build a rail trail without the transit. It is politically impossible to get the rail back in once people have gotten rid of it. This idea was in a Seattle paper this morning. If you want the rails with the trails, gotta put them in.
