Rail trail proponents already have a path

This topic gets very polarized, to the ridiculous. Turn it into a path? It is already a path, free to use at no cost.

This topic gets very polarized, to the ridiculous. Turn it into a path? It is already a path, free to use at no cost. If you want a groomed sidewalk path, try the multitude of alleys and lanes skirted by the railway. Then there are also the streets for walking. All free.

The Parkway Trail is never crowded. Every time I drive the parkway I see a half-dozen at best using it. The rest of the Parkway Trail needs all these railway path supporters to prove they use paths.

Now that tram idea is really sound. Make it high enough so when it’s realized its value, trains will run under the scenic tramway.
