I agree that it could be a huge boon to business but it's something that is going to need to gain a foothold first and there are only a few routes that will be profitable enough to make that happen. My hope is that we get a few profitable routes going and then the market takes off and it expands from there.
I am 100% behind you on the benefits to business. On medium distance routes train travel is leaps and bounds more efficient, cost effective and business friendly.
Definitely didn't feel that way. Again, think you made some really good points in the discussion. It's been good discussion.
