Rails to Trails OR Trails to Rails

Ben:

I don't have anyhting against bikes or hikers, But I don't advocate turning railbeds into trails anymore either. Once you put in a trail on the Beacon Line, it will make it that much more difficult to use the tracks for their intended purpose. As for $$ the feds are in the process of re-directng transportation funds for light rail and trams....A tram would do two things. it would move people from the rver to uptown and would be an attraction in itself. I dont think we are…

A green Trolley for Beacon

There are a number of precedents for track gauge to be mixed in the past... The point here is that

NG track could be laid between the existing standard gauge track and would not have to cross the MNRR main, as the line crosses the MN main via a bridge putting it on the west side of the main line. The track then could follow the walkway to near the end of the Metro North parking lot a short walk from the station.

Even without the NG track, the MTA track could be…

Trams Trains and Trolleys

With the TOD a hot issue for us and other transportation issues faced not only by Beacon, but by most communities around the country, I'd like to chime in again after just returning from Europe; sometimes referred to as the "Old World" as opposed to that idea that somehow we here in the USA are "new" IE advanced technologically. Europe is, thought by many, to be "old" or worn out,

It's been a few years since Ive been to Europe. I recently returned from four weeks in Belgium…

Dogs and Cancer

After diagnosis, second opinion, x-rays, etc. and vet bills that amount to a mortgage payment, I received the heartbreaking news that my dog has a tumor attributed to bone cancer. The treatment choices are leg amputation and radiation or letting nature take it's course. Years ago I vowed to start making my own dog food after learning of the harmful cancer-causing chemicals in dog food, but never followed through. Does anybody have any insight, experiences, recipes, alternative remedies they… Continue

Pinball is illegal in Beacon. Arcade my close. See CNN report.

Thanks to James Watkins for bringing this to our attention on another post.



Is the City of Beacon just going to let this guy go out of business? That's crazy. Does the major or somebody have the authority to not enforce the law until it is rewritten? Let the Mayor and City Council know you are all for legalized pinball playing!…

What's happening at Long Dock Park?

Does anyone know what the plans are for the open space at Long Dock Park between the parking lot and the railroad?

Thanks,
