Blue line to Lynn will not use existing CR tracks; it will be built next to it. The narrow guage route option has been rejected already; too many noise impacts.

Would the Blue Line be noisier than the narrow gauge trains that used to run there?

Probably not, but when you consider its been , what....sixty years....since a train used that route, and they've built those fool condos along the beach, the odds of that route being used are slim.
