*A second transbay tunnel with standard-gauge rail to Alameda/Oakland. It would not only help redevelop the old naval base, but it might also allow for regular Amtrak service into the City via Oakland. Perhaps even HSR could roll through that tunnel on dedicated tracks if necessary--Penninsula NIMBYs seem determined, as usual, to keep all change from touching their little garden suburbs.
i think this would be fantastic. that means u would be able to take hsr from sf to sac VIA OAKLAND (either thru the altamont or capitol corridor right of ways). and the transbay terminal being an amtrak TRAIN station? this would be train porn.
