The Press Herald recently reported that a train from Portland to Westbrook could cost as much as $100 million. For a fraction of the cost, we could have a safe, multi-use trail with rail that could connect the two cities.

An off-road alternative would be a great alternative to Brighton Avenue, Forest Avenue or outer Congress Street for bicyclists, walkers, joggers and cross-country skiers. A trail with rail would maintain the possibility of rail service for the future.
