Re: Chicago South Shore and South Bend Railroad

I think of the airport lot in this case as a place to leave the car when taking either a plane or the train. Obviously the airport location is not adjacent the semi-abandonned downtown. So ask yourself in the context of a declining city (vacant downtown former office building or commercial sites, vacant lots where former manufacturing plants have been bulldozed) where your traveling market is. I don't live there, but my sense is that the largest "industry" in town is Notre Dame--which is not "downtown". Traditionally train stations were located where either commercial activity or other major 'destinations'existed. If none of those are near the ROW, then how do you propose to locate a station?
