WORLD RAIL PROJECTS
"It is the unfortunate destiny of the ridiculous to be subject to ridicule."
James Howard Kunstler
"Truth passes through three phases: 1) It is ridiculed. 2) It is violently opposed. 3) It is accepted as self-evident." Albert Schopenhouer
From the Cabalmaster:
The Secret Worldwide Transit Cabal has compiled the following list for your interest.
---One of the best transit sites on the web, "metroPlanet" www.metropla.net provides information, maps, photos and links for the world’s heavy-rail (subway) systems. The news page is at: www.metropla.net/news.htm.
---"Rinbad," sponsored by the Branch Line Society (UK), has several lists of recent and planned rail line openings: www.rinbad.demon.co.uk/index.htm.
---The Light Rail Transit Association (UK) website www.lrta.org includes a list of world light rail and tramway systems www.lrta.org/world/worldind.html and a news page www.lrta.org/news/newsindex02.html. A “fact sheet” (see: “Fact Sheet No 54. The Tramway / Light Rail Explosion, www.lrta.org/facts54.html) lists the 76 light rail and tramway systems that have been opened worldwide since 1980.
And finally, if you’d like to flummox your neighborhood rail transit basher, tell her/him that "countries all over the world are building rail transit; why, there’s even a subway in Outer Mongolia!" Then, give ‘em the following URL to the Ulaan Baator Metroo: ulaanbaator.narod.ru/. This is an elaborate, very clever -- and almost convincing -- ruse by some stereotypical "Mad Russian" (but don't let the secret out!)
