I'm quite aware of it. They only started that recently! I didn't even
think to mention the Fall River problems. It wouldn't be so bad if double
track ran from Middleboro to Braintree. From Braintree a four track main
into Boston would delay problems for a few years.
I'm suprised that you want to limit growth on the commuter lines. I would
rather to see much better track arrangements and double track on both
lines. I would also like to see bilevels on all the trains. Right now I
think only two trainsets have bilevels. I would also like to see more
parking space for the stations. If you try to leave at 7:30 at
several stations, you'll be hardpressed to get a space.
