How about increasing train service between western Mass and our capital Boston? I am totally in favor of walking out my door and hopping a train to Boston or New York....What about adding some northbound destinations, too. With more elderly folks here in Berkshire, we should be getting them off the roads with a viable option.

How about getting people to visit the Berkshires by train? Imagine not having to sit behind the wheel of a car - absolute heaven! I have heard about the trolleys that connected the towns here many many years ago.....Why can't we have light rail here? Imagine the possibility of leaving Tanglewood one summer evening without having to endure the "30 minute exit drill" plus the ride home....Imagine taking a train or bus to a local ski center (Notchview, Jiminy Peak, Bousquet, or Prospect Mountain).....No....Can't let that happen....we might start having way too much fun to get the automobile "off our backs".

Taking a train to Pittsfield, assuming you are stupid enough to go there, might be the way to go. However, once you are there you run up against the gridlock road system which has more traffic lights than Boston. You can pretty much walk from one end of the city to the other faster than you can move your vehicle. I don't know if it is true or not that politicians in charge get kickbacks for every new traffic light but kickbacks are not unheard of.

You might rent a bike once you get there but be careful you don't get run over by a frustrated car driver who is late getting to his or her destination because of all the stop and go traffic lights. If you enjoy walking through molasses you will enjoy trying to move around in Pittsfield.

Pittsfield should be bulldozed over. Start fresh. I've lived here over 8 years. The locals are all head cases. Very depressing place. Wierd. All the restaurants are closing down, stores are barely making it. Closing churches. You know it's bad when the catholic church pulls out. Haw haw.
