Are the “owners” of the Island rail forgetting the public? To me, it would seem that way. I have waited for some time for a construction plus cost list.
From what I note, there isn’t one. The whole line has to be excavated then re-laid as the No. 1 item; at what cost and at what timeline to completion ready for the cars?
Next is the means of locomotion. What engine, that powers the unit at least to over 50 km/h? Definitely not a Montreal bud car.
Proposed schedules? There is far too much secrecy. Surely the public would appreciate honest answers if they were forthcoming. It would also give the public a chance to compare travel cost: highway or railway. I note also that the terminus has been move into Esquimalt away from the preferred location in town. What a brilliant stroke of genius.
Whoever thought up that gem ought to join the government think tank, (no swimming allowed).
