Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Did anyone read what I actually said. I'm in favor of light rail or electric transport. In the US all those who see nothing ugly with miles of strip malls suddenly become aesthetes when it is time to put up wind farms or add mass transit.

Don't blame me, I rode the train to work when I traveled to NYC.

Currently a plan to add a third track to the mainline of the Long Island Railroad to increase capacity is running into opposition because it will require removing about 15 homes and widening the right of way slightly. I guess the opponents favor the increased auto traffic that will result if the expansion doesn't take place.

The US is the world leader in NIMBYism.

Something that could, should be fought by making clear that rail can even have sightiness.
