Re: R.I.P: The Cincinnati Streetcar
This has been talked about before but I thought the 3C rail was a disaster. It was a poorly designed plan that was banking on funds to keep funneling into the program as it went further. The plan was eventually to create high speed rail but in essence it was going to start off as the traditional passenger rail that hasn't worked in America in decades.
However I was fully in favor of the Street Car. I thought it was a good idea that would work based upon its original design and would have room for growth. I thought it would have been the basis for a more complete light rail in Cincy Metro area. Unfortunately it came about when the country and city was in a recession and the continued funding would have drained a city with a current budget problem. Had this plan arisen in 2004 or around there I think it would have been a success.
