Steve whenever you mention the Blue Line all I can think about is Wonderland station in Massachusetts.

Not familiar with MA's transit, but looking at the aerial of the Wonderland Station, it looks like heavy rail (commuter rail). Our blue (NE) line will most certainly have park-and-rides with some good sized lots, but the trains will look exactly like the ones running down south--futuristic looking. The train running up the purple line to Mooresville will look a lot more like MBTA's trains (ironically enough, their commuter rail lines are purple too).

I'm just looking forward to a more regular schedule with less delays on the blue line, as opposed to the express bus. It'll be nice to be able to get home before 4pm if needed (the earliest bus I can catch is 3:30pm). Plus, the sound of the tracks all the way into work will most certainly make for some good sleep!
