Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Thats not the point in question here. He's illustrating a hypothetical scenario, and you're getting hung up on the fictional person's name in this scenario, rather than actually address his point.

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

So if they ‘will put it someplace else’ why does No Name have to accomodate the T for no benefit to them?

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Probably a lawyer. They’re usually the ones to deliver bad news. “Sorry, but we’ve gone with another option. Tough luck on that shake down, huh?”

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Exactly. If you think you have a way to make some money with the property you have by exploiting the technicalities of the easement, why wouldn’t you?

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Why? If this was someone who had bought a parking lot in Fenway, hoping a developer would pay them bank, we wouldn’t bat an eye. It just sucks because we’re the beneficiaries that lose out if this...

I think its an obnoxious move, but why the hell else would you buy a parcel of land if not to profit from it?

Re: North-South Rail Link

Would it? I’d be surprised if its much cheaper, since you’re still boring a tunnel under the city, and, on top of that, you might interfere with a future NSRL.

I had an idea to build support for this: A billboard with two pictures of those digital signs that tell you the travel time to a given set of locations. You know '8 miles to Braintree - 14 minutes.'...

While we’re on the topic of commuter rail stations, does anyone think that the price reduction at Quincy Center could get made permanent? If N. Quincy gets a similar overhaul to Wollaston, then...

Well, we’re really into transit pitches here, but what about taking something out of that office park on Riverside Rd? And/or deck over 128 just north of where the CR tracks cross it. That said,...

Crazy idea to fund it: flyover tolling on 93.

Crazy only because people would hate it.

Even broke college kids hate screaming babies. I know I took the train whenever possible for that reason alone.

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

Plus if all our commuter rail lines ended at the subway terminal stations, then we'd be effectively cut off from ever developing a regional rail system like is now being advocated.
