Kudos and thanks to Bruce Hiland and his group of concerned citizens for bringing more attention to the rail project before it is too late.

This committed group has spent hours researching the history of this project. Their efforts have brought forth information that we, as concerned citizens, should know and, consequently, be able to act upon accordingly.

Editorial: Middlebury rail project — The next prudent step is to stop and reconsider

Posted on December 7, 2017 |
By Angelo Lynn



A citizen’s campaign calling for a review of Vermont Agency of Transportation’s proposed $52 million, three-year Middlebury rail project has a straight-forward objection: stop and reassess before pulling the trigger on a project that opponents say is two or three times as expensive as the alternative, and will cause substantial harm to downtown businesses.

Letter to the Editor: A modest answer to train's height

Posted on December 7, 2017 |
By Lee Beckwith



Regarding the height requirement for the Amtrak passenger train of the future — it is unfortunate that Amtrak is unwilling to compromise on the double decker car height requirement. I’m almost embarrassed to suggest as I am sure someone must have thought of this already, as rider numbers increase and the cars get too crowded, simply add another car. Trains can easily get longer. Must they become taller?
