  •  Electrification of rail - returning (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    us to what worked before the Oil Industry combined with the Auto Industry to tear up the tracks.  It's a great idea and I hope it happens.  I think the rails themselves (electric or diesel trains) should be nationalized, along with the electric power grid - then the users of said infrastructure can concentrate on that (and big companies won't be able to shut out small companies by denying them access as they do now).

    Here in NW AR, we've been talking about light rail for decades.  Maybe someday we'll get it, especially since the Hwy 71 corridor from Fayetteville to Bentonville is morphing itself into one long, skinny, snakelike mini-metroplex.  It would be great if they'd do it electric (of course greater if they just do it at all).
