Cincinnati Embracing Rail

Another Midwest success story:

Dear Friend:
I wanted to let you in on some exciting news: a Streetcar visiting Cincinnati.  It is going to be set up on Fountain Square on 5th Street and you will be able to climb aboard and check it out.  It arrives tomorrow and will be here through Wednesday, November 10 and will be open for people to tour from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm tomorrow and from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm daily after that.
This is a great opportunity for you and your friends to climb aboard and see a modern Streetcar up close.  This isn’t necessarily the Streetcar that we will have in Cincinnati because we haven’t selected our model yet, but it will give you a great idea of what you can expect when our Streetcar system is up and running in 2013.
I invite you to join me tomorrow at 1:00 pm for the opening so that you can be among the first to tour the Streetcar. 
The Streetcar is an exciting project for Cincinnati.  I hope that you get a chance to come to Fountain Square and check it out while it is here, and bring your friends and family when you do. 
Mark Mallory

So tear up every road in the city and rebuild the rails like the 1920s. That's the answer to everything except how to get from the station to your destination without using a car. This only works if gas goes to $10/gal. Otherwise its just an expensive public bus.
