^ That brings us full circle. My comment was advocating a re-prioritizing of more ambitious ground up systems like a BART, like a WMATA, like a MARTA instead of relying on commuter rail along legacy freight corridors often operating with access agreements that caps the kind of service levels that could grow ridership even further. The issue here really isn't propulsion, I did not mean to make it sound like it was, it really is route. An intentional corridor designed for maximum ridership catchment is obviously going to always be more ideal than working with pre-existing rail infrastructure.
Trumpism is the road to ruin.
