As one who grew up in suburban Chicago & experienced the efficiency of good trains and later went cross-country by train more than once and has ridden Canada Rail and Eurail, I am so excited to hear of these plans to improve rail! My family would certainly use it -- if it is affordable. We'd love to take train trips now, but it's pretty expensive. It also would help our tourism, based on how the Eurail Pass is a popular & wonderful way to see Europe. Imagine tying in a trip down the Willamette, just like the Eurail ties in with trips on the Rhine, etc. We must reduce auto use & pollution & this is a great alternative.
