Seniors want trains

Seniors need transportation as their ability to travel is reduced. More trails do not help. Train travel is more comfortable and you can move around and go to the washroom. Not worry about traffic. Trains carry more people and reduce road traffic. One dayliner coach can carry 90 people.

Freight traffic can haul larger loads and take some trucks off the road.

How many people remember waving at the train as it went by?

Maybe the federal government should help restore rail service on Vancouver Island?
