        Just goes to show that if we used the existing rail right of ways as proposed in 61, 67 we would already have a much larger LRT system. Now we have GMU, Arena, and a new museum instead.

          I'd never noticed before that that plan uses the CN ROW to go east and west, 15 years before the Yellowhead Trail snagged that real estate. I'm not sure that those would be particularly useful lines.

          Definitely too bad that a 104/105ave ROW wasn't reserved, and I still think that the 121 st ROW as in combination with other existing Rail lines is the best way to get to St. Albert.
          There can only be one.

              And a much faster LRT system too. Also, it didn't have to be an either / or. We could have had it all.

                That's still the plan for the existing tunnel, should the need ever arise.
