Fantastic news: Caltrain wants to move to modern light rail
Original post made by Railroader on Jan 26, 2007
For those who might like to help the process, note that the stumbling block is the old Federal Railroad Act -- essentially, passenger trains operating on freight lines must be freight heavy on the assumption of collisions, even though commuter lines don't run freight at the same time.
The rules have needed updating for decades but those in Congress have not been inspired to take it on. A note from a citizen or two could go a long way.
In the meantime, thank you Art Lloyd for speaking out.
