Since I've started working at the airport, I've been taking the Blue Line. So I've been driving down Route 1A, and ironically, I have been thinking, were would be the best place for the Blue Line to fly over. I have been thinking the piece of marshlands near that giant pink condo buliding would the best... since there seems to be ample room for tracks, the only problem is the CR goes through Oak Island. It will be a very very tight squeeze
Because after that's theres a neighborhood, which would have to demolished or somehow tunneled under. And then you got some condos squeezed onto the ROW, which I believe are the ones mentioned and finally, you more of less have a large swath of water on the marsh.
Another question is, do we use pantographs or have switch off again to third rail?

I believe it's a condo that juts onto on the ROW. And actually, I believe the guy who built it, according to my father, wrote an editorial in the Item wanting the Blue Line to come so he can tear it do. (I'm guessing, one... eminent domain compensation, and two, condos never really did well in Revere?)
Blue Line to Lynn: Transit discrimination at it's finest.
