The big day has finally arrived. Houston now has trains running up and down Main Street, from UH Downtown all the way past Reliant Stadium. Deciding not to miss the first day, Sally, Michael, Everett, John the train geek and I walked downtown to catch a train. Unfortunately it seemed that about 15,000 other Houstonians had the same idea, and it took several hours before we could get on one. This way to the photograph album!
There are many people who think the light rail plan is a total waste of money and that no one will ever ride the trains. I hope they’re wrong. Nothing would make me happier than to be able to take a train to work every day . . . except not going to work at all.
