Trains Can Work

This article was a great thing to read. Mainly because I take the Capital Corridor route a great deal. The article sums up everything that is great and still needing improvement with it. The fact I can get up to Oroville in just an hour longer than it takes to drive is pretty fantastic. It’s unfortunate that the train doesn’t go up the Central Valley, since it is definitely the better way to travel, but I’ll take what I can get and take it often. My rather unfortunate experience with Enterprise last weekend has made me appreciate the ease of the rail system even more. And of course, the more we ride it, the more the powers that be will see it and hopefully give a new life to our old rail system that used to be great in days of yore.
