Through town? That seems kind of...well, affected. Actually using it for a bridge is one thing (there is plenty of precedent for moving and reusing old bridges) but putting them downtown to represent an elevated railway we never had doesn't quite fit. (We still have part of our own "high line," the old Southern Pacific/Transcontinental Railroad main line along B Street, but we never stopped using it. The old R Street railroad levee/trestle was removed in the early 1900s but they kept running trains, just at street level.) Not to mention, where would you put such a thing?

But hey, maybe we could use it to deck I-5!
