3) What is the electrical carrying load of a frieght train through a rural area with a 120 foot right-of-way if a european swallow lands on the train as it is passing an unladen ASA commuter train? (ahhh - only joking - please don't even mention commuter rail here!!!)
BRT to LRT is not economically sound.

Anyone wishing there was eventually LRT on Fred Road can keep wishing.

What about BRT on one side and LRT on the other?

Could that work? Would it make sense?

If they had reason to interline, it's possible since you can always create a concrete trackbed, but there's no place to really branch off from that point.

Having it on both sides, though? Nahhhh.
