Is the Miami Beach LRV some sort of conduit system or some sort of induction scheme? Any electrolysis issues here? What's wrong with catenary - it works. Screw the prissy architects.

Bad news, but then I am reminded of that picture of Walt and Jesse Haugh in front of a bus with a destination sign Disneyland. Base tunnels to Palmdale are much stupider than streetcars in Anaheim.

Why a base tunnel on a tertiary route? Just build out the cheapest SR14 alignment as it is just a commute op to enrich some real estate developers. Jerry is indeed the "boogey man" decreeing 200 m
