What's the big deal? Just take the last train to Clarksville and I'll meet you at the station. You can be there by 4:30 cause I've made your reservation.

Most definitely bring back the trains. Trucks destroy the roads, cause accidents, screw up the traffic patterns and are downright annoying. It would make commuting less stressful. Now I am referring to the delivery of freight by train but also if passenger trains are being considered make sure the price is reasonable and set it up so that it don't take 3 hours to reach a destination which only takes 45 minutes by auto.
