Rail out west

Abit parochial, maybe, but it’d be a heck of a deal of those few of us in the country west or south of Hillsboro, Oregon – a commuter rail that could run between Forest Grove and Cornelius and (this is the key part) could link p with the MAX line at Hillsboro. That would effectively extend MAX’s reach a dozen or so key miles out of town, to Pacific University and to the wine country.

The talks for so doing are evidently underway, and that could be a highly useful development for the country west of Portland, and might even given the Tri-Met system a useful shot. Although considering the increase in ridership owing to high gas prices, that may be only partly needed . . .
