Setback Questioned

The Saporta Report calls out naysayers who tolled the death knell for downtown's long-planned Multimodal Passenger Terminal after news broke that existing rail might not allow for train passengers after all. Offers Saporta: "What if the federal, state, local and private entities could work with Norfolk-Southern and other railroads to upgrade their tracks to improve their efficiency (or even build new rail) so that they could handle more freight traffic and offer passenger service? Under such a scenario, everyone wins." [Saporta Report]
