Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/2/18 6:23pm northguineahills:

Yeah, our rail system sucks. Our governor, Skeletor, decided not to take money from the Obama administration that was earmarked for a high speed railway. Somehow, central FL in the last decade built a commuter railway (opened in 2014) that goes about 32 miles/51 km. They are expanding south right now and plan to expand it north. It actually connects w/ Amtrak.
Avatar Wed. 5/2/18 6:24pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

There was so much opposition to that railway
Avatar Wed. 5/2/18 6:26pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I'm in the most beautiful place I've ever been in my life. And I'm happy, I'm happier than I've ever been in my life. I'm so happy.
