phyrkrakr: I wonder why more municipalities don't look at elevated railways these days to solve mass transit problems. Everybody wants to put tubes underground, but tunneling seems like it would be more expensive than elevated rail. Is it a noise thing?It just seems like putting elevated tracks on existing right of way clears up so many problems related to eminent domain, traffic integration, and construction cost. If somebody wants to explain the downsides, I'd be happy to hear it.
