Rail trail could make majority happy

When I read the opinion pieces there usually seems to be something about not wanting the trains to come back.

When I get a chance to read the opinion pieces in the paper there usually seems to be something about not wanting the trains to come back, which I understand completely, or the lack of walking/hiking/biking trails.

Can’t we make the majority happy? Why not use the old railway tracks and turn them into a safe place for people to hike, bike or walk. There are crossing markings at every intersection that crosses a road already.

Reboot the rail and make it a safe and easy place for those who bike walk and hike, which seems to be a lot of us. It would help everyone out, wouldn’t it?

Just one opinion.
