Dedicated to Sharing the Heritage of Redwood Empire Railroading
So I don't know if you guys have heard,
but Marin residents, and a few local politicians, are pushing to get a study done for the start of a new light rail/trolly network that would once again connect all of Marin together. The line will first run down busy congested areas of Larkspur, San Rafael ect, and will use streetcars made to look and feel like those of the 20's and 30's, but will run on high-charge lithium batteries instead of overhead wires. Now they say it will improve apon much of the NWP interurban network of the 20's and 30's, and may even run adjacent to some of the old ROW. Much of the push for it comes from Marin locals who work in county, and want SMART but it wont be viable for them to take it one town over.
I was wondering what you guys have heard, or even think about this idea. I'd be all for it, but i'd also be the first one to try and get a train up Mt. Tam again.
