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.
