    I’ve written about this insanity. You just have pictures. You forgot to mention that this expense is taking place so that A train can make 2 trip each day…between Beaverton and Wilsonville.

    Insanity.

    I added some more of the details of this Choo choo train.
    Personally I miss the ducks.

    The insanity of this is predicted, but ignored. Adding to the congestion on Beaverton-Hillsdale and Canyon Road during peak traffic…more delays, more frustration. The obvious solution would be a new highway between Hillsboro and Wilsonville…but highways are bad. They allow people choices.

    I’m glad I don’t live in Beaverton. Traffic between 135th and Main from Allen to the Highway to 217 is already crazy. This madness will only increase delays. Good thing we’re only spending 60-million to build the line. Operating it is going to going to cost how much?
