The Dinky has consumed some $30 million in operating subsidy since being taken over by NJ Transit. A new light-rail service, extended to Nassau Street, meeting 13 more trains each day at the Junction, operating without a penny of subsidy, seems like something at least worth considering--except "on here" where you and your personal ilk seem fixated on venerating a wretchedly inefficient mode of transporting customers a mere 2.6 miles.
The extension of the Dinky from the new station around the new Arts Campus will be on standard ballasted track, except using recycled-plastic ties, until entering University Place. The in-street system chosen requires no disruption of subsurface utilities, no changes to existing traffic signals, no intersection with road traffic and and just two new signs, and can be installed in four days, compared with three weeks for ballasted trackwork. And at 20% the cost.
I very much appreciate the challenging feedback from this forum; if I can't provide a convincing response here, then what am I going to say publicly before, say, Princeton Council? And thank goodness, there's usually a bit of positive reinforcement, even encouragement, every now and then.
When I summered in Canada some years ago, current was supplied at 25 Hz; the lights flickered.
