I wish had a Euro style rail system as well. But I think we are about 30 years too late in its development. The window of opportunity has been long
closed due to increased Urban and Suburban sprawl.
They wanted a rail system in Ohio to connect Cleveland, Columbus and Cincy. It would take longer to travel city to city by rail than by car. Fine
for recreational travel but not practical for business users. I want the TGV!! bought and paid for by private equity. I don't like getting taxed
for projects that should be privately funded. Here in Cleveland, they dinged us years back in order to pay for a new Baseball Stadium. Now they are
whacking us to build a New Medical Mart. We pay 7.75% local sales tax which drives people out of the county to make major purchases.
