Maybe he could make the CSRM a "charity". Buying his way into heaven and buying a bunch of goodwill for his companies. Sorry, tycoons don't do anything for me. Certainly not role models.

So your tunnel would cut the curve to Palmdale north of Burbank south of Sta. Clarita but not as long or as radically as PB's Angeles National Forest tunnel proposals? Sounds ok to me but I simply

That's what I am calling CAHSR. No bailout too big to save it. Does anybody have a leak on the inside at PB as to what they have decided to do between Palmdale and Burbank? They claim they have n

These politicians divert your tax payments to their cronies and give you mediocrities at best in return. Think CAHSR twisted into a humongous detour to Palmdale-Mojave. I call it FailRail. Or h

The same argument can be applied to SMART, with very little freight business and an expensive, non-productive off-trunk spur to the UP. No way the freight can pay for the maintenance. With transit
