Re: Rail project is Chicago looks to ease congestion

Actually the planning started over a decade ago. Much of it is IMHO good. That said, there is a legacy as I wrote earlier of RR caused bottlenecks which the bean counters created by pennywise poundfoolish "economy" moves.
And on the political side, as I watch CSX for the second time in my life (B&O the first time) increase tunnel clearances, I note that in the 60s it was we the stockholders who paid for it, now these "pillars of the private sector" are in the Federal and state troughs for the Gateway Project just as NS was for the "Heartland Corridor". As a socialist, I don't object, BUT, when CSX or others sabotage passenger services, I am livid. Cash my checks? cooperate!
