Ohio Congress members seek Lake Erie high speed rail corridor | cleveland.com

Looks like there's a chance for a train that I think is even better than the first one proposed, sounds like the governor might be open to it. Cross your fingers.

This might actually work. I like the idea of linking Youngstown and Toledo in there as well.

On an earlier thread about high speed rail I said that a 3C rail was doomed to failure and that it doesn't matter that Kasich turned it down. And I said we will get a rail from Buffalo to Chicago with stops in Akron, Cleveland and Toledo. The "enlightened" progressive posters on C-D called me names, said I was for destroying the environment, was for slavery and wanted to see Ohio left behind economically. LOLs. All I said was I-70 bewtween the 3Cs worked well enough that a rail wouldn't be successful so why waste the money.

Look like I was right and the lefties were wrong.

That because I'm a winner and they are losers.

No apology needed. LOLs.

I70 doesn't go between the 3Cs.

HOWEVER, I'd love to ride rail between CLE and Lexington

Thank God someone sees the need and the reason for one. I'd like to ride it from city to city just for the fun of it. Breakfast in Cleveland, lunch in Columbus and diner in Cincy, then back home. Now that would be a great day.

We will see, with Kasich as governor, I truly weep for any progressive actions that state of Ohio can take, because they probaly will NEVER happen.

Columbus and Cincinnati would not be apart of this.

From the article posted:
Quote:
A bipartisan group of northern Ohio Congress members met Thursday with Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood to discuss building a high speed rail line along Lake Erie that would link Cleveland with Chicago, Detroit, Toledo and Buffalo, and also include routes to Youngstown and Pittsburgh. Building a line along the lake is a top tier part of Obama's rail program.
Personally, I like this idea better than the 3-C corridor proposal. This way, participating states can help absorb the operating cost.

Chicago is a popular destination, and the train would attract tourists from the other cities it connects with. As CortlandGirl has mentioned in another thread, there are several people in Youngstown that commute to Cleveland, so that would beneficial as well.

Not to mention the business connection between Cleveland and Pittsburgh, which are more connected than many people realize.
Welcome to Cleveburgh! Pittsburghers need to rethink their place in the world
Quote:
Northeast Ohio and southwestern Pennsylvania are far more interconnected with each other than either region is with other parts of Ohio or Pennsylvania. The day-to-day interaction of local businesses are geared toward regional partners, not Harrisburg or Columbus. Pittsburgh industries are far more linked to markets and suppliers in Youngstown, Akron and Cleveland than with those in Allentown, Scranton or even Philadelphia. In so many ways the state boundaries we think of as important are no more than lines on a map.

Well then, I guess I won't be riding it then. All the cities you listed from the article are cities I have no use for. Oh Well.

EB, you'll also have to stop in Youngstown/Warren (hopefully there is a stop in Warren some day) and have some Briar Hill Pizza and Hot Dog Shoppe. Plus if you like itialian and pizza there are lots and lots of local joints that are amazing.
