    Have not as yet explored it all, so may be missing the answer. :oops: I wonder how much of the same areas is being covered (recovered), by today's light rail efforts?

    Light rail is being designed as a sort of boondoggle if you ask me. In Denver they used it to reduce bus lines in some areas and the light rail pretty much follows either highway or railway right of ways.

    I wouldn't say our new light rail is convenient or reasonably priced.

    Makes me wonder when, or IF they'll ever make it to the end of the line here, in Longmont!
    Supposed to, but I've heard by 2040, IF we're lucky! I'd go to Denver a bit more maybe, IF
    they made it this far! We are paying for it, but NOT getting it. Grossly mismanaged, in MY opinion.

    To cover a good amount of stuff, regarding Denver tramways,

    There's a 3 volume set of books.
    Denvers street railways.

    I've got the set. Gotta call it a night right quick.
    Otherwise, I'd include the book information! After my Dr visit in the AM.

    If you read the articles he also cites a bunch of books in the last tab. I think those are mentioned.
