Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm sorry I wasn't clear, I meant previous transportation infrastructure. Existing lines can eat up budgets if maintenance hasn't been taken seriously for too long, but it may also push planner towards incremental ameliorations on the existing lines rather than build new lines... and delay the inevitable at the expense of commuters.

As for NY, the lines can't be much older than London or Moscow, can they? But let's not get into the subjet of U.S. infrastructure, it's just too much of a shame.

On a side note, since I know that you are a train fan, I did NY-SF by train last summer. A great, great experience. I did take picture of bridges too !

Rien n'est gratuit en ce bas monde. Tout s'expie, le bien comme le mal, se paie tot ou tard. Le bien c'est beaucoup plus cher, forcement. Celine
