I've been reading versions of everything the nay-sayers have had to say since about 1985. They just file the serial numbers off, change a couple of words and regurgitate the same stuff. I can see the damn tracks across the river from my bedroom window. I've lived within walking distance of them. I was 19 when the last Boston-Concord train ran (the demo project in 1981, rode the Boston-Nashua segment). I'll be retiring in just over 7 years. I won't see this in my lifetime.
