Rail centrr

I almost literally get sick as I drive by what was one of the most beautiful areas in Alton could trees not be left? Walking trails? I truly believe that when a city starts to relinquish its green spaces for what will probably eventually include some strip malls, the city has started to lose more integrity.

Bikes are a good move

I'm glad the plan included bicycles, since Amtrak is now integrating roll-on bicycle service in several of its lines. It also creates a nice opportunity for bicycle tourism, since Adventure Cycling is now publishing maps of Old Rt. 66. Cyclists wanting to just ride the IL section can utilize Amtrak for the return trip. And that's just one possibility! I'm incredibly interested to see how Alton improves its own infrastucture to allow bicycle traffic to and from the multimode station and other parts of town.
