Good post. These rail threads are a disgrace to Chicago, a wonderful city that doesn't need to be associated with a stubborn poster.hydrogen said:Why show photos of the CTA system if you're asking about commuter rail? The el is rapid transit, not commuter rail. Metra is commuter rail. And Tokyo still pwns Chicago. It has SEVENTY FIVE commuter rail lines that transport 20 million a day. Metra has about 35,000 riders each day. Tokyo is the undisputed KING of commuter rail, without question.

Thank you for making the distinction. ChicagoSkyline's ignorance and bravado in no way represent that of most Chicago forumers here at SSC.Jue said:Good post. These rail threads are a disgrace to Chicago, a wonderful city that doesn't need to be associated with a stubborn poster.
Well, I know, of course!DonQui said:And I banged the tooth fairy last night.
We are dealing with reality, not fantasy.
As of now, Chicago has no Acela and a mediocre commuter rail system.
