I'd be interested if anyone has insight into the different methods of tunnel construction, but from what I've read cut and cover is significantly less. Even if the majority of the cost is station-related, they only have one station planned. It just seems strange to me.
also they should go with one of the 2-station options: one of the stations is in the commercial office district, and one in the industrial district. maybe if they do cut and cover, they'd be able to afford both stations.
the blue option seems best for that; the office district station is closer to most of the offices than the pink option.

I just saw what was either the CSX Geometry Train or, more likely, the CSX Business Train go over the High Line today. Anyone know more about this?

I don't know anything but I wish I did. I can see the High Line from my office.

Looks like they're finally putting in the new bridge at Wawa.

It's PATCO's 50th anniversary today!
Fares are the same as they were in 1969, with basic fares at $0.30.
