Re: Amtrak considering Bi-levels for NE Corridor

There was a kind of roundabout connector until recent history -- the Hospital Branch. Unfortunately, an attempt at shortline development failed in the face of NIMBY locals and government, and it's now all gone to trails. http://www.stb.dot.gov/filings/all.nsf/6084f194b67ca1c4852567d9005751dc/35d1110...
