Pay for it. If the taxes weren't so high in NYS and private enterprise were alive and well, it would have been built 30 years ago (or more). Imagine... a rail system w/o Amtrak. Mmmm. The good old days.

There's nothing in Schenectady worth putting in railcars! If you are talking about commuters, it's faster and cheaper to drive. If you are talking about commerce... there isn't any! Dumb, dumb, dumb idea.

Well, Dan I think you made my point. There's nothing in Sc'dy worth putting in rail cars, so is there? Amtrak still there? Just curious.

Btw, I know a commuter to Albany (Mall), and I think a bus would be better for him (from a park and ride).
