President supports Pittsburgh-Harrisburg-Philly rail line

President supports Pittsburgh-Harrisburg-Philly rail line: "President supports Pittsburgh-Harrisburg-Philly rail line"

It seems to me that it would be better to have a high speed line that went from Johnstown, Somerset, Hidden Valley, Monroeville, Pittsburgh, Robinson spur, Beaver, Youngstown, Canton, Cleveland, with stops in and around as fitting.

Furthermore, we need plain old rail, not light rail, to move around the city. How about the past when one could go from McKeesport to Sewickly with a stop at Station Square. The New Ken and Oakmont to Highland Park and L-ville and Downtown line is there. One goes to Butler too.

This region is rich in rail lines.

Going to Philly, --- not so much of a demand.

Any rail line that went to hidden valley would be fine. The key to Obama's plan is transcontinental mass transportation that doesn't rely on the airlines.
