California high speed rail update

So the things I heard was BART glommed onto money to buy new rail cars, construction workers are being hired from minority communities and high paying jobs are being generated, even if no high speed rail train ever runs

    Here’s the deal. I have received for Christmas 2018, The Southern Railway , a book by Flannery, Lindsey, Oroszi. Great book. Good history overview of each division and many pics. Mainly in the diesel era before merging with Norfolk & Western.
    Good stuff. Listening to John B Wells, worked at the N&W archives today. Enjoying a great drink with mr Evan Williams. The Jeep is running good also.
    Hope all is well with you & and Mrs Countess, now that you are home.

      It will be around 70 degrees in Charlotte today. This has thrown Countess for a loop and she was considering calling for an ambulance again. For now, she is fighting the fever with homeopathic remedies.

    State of Virginia plan for ‘upgrade-ing ‘ I-81 . Governor Ralph, (D) has proposed tolls for I-81 , with no reduction in gas tax. They love to raise taxes , but its for the children.
    No mention if they plan to widen to three lanes all 325 miles of I 81 in VA.
    ( Just enhancements) .

    West Virginia widened their 26 mile portion to three lanes each way years ago. I support the proposed bridge from West Virginia to Pennsylvania over ‘mer-lan’.

    VA general assembly getting ready to start and come up with another 300 worthless new laws this year.
    that is all
