BROOKSIDE RESIDENTS FEAR A TOY TRAIN TROJAN HORSE!!!

I suspect a great deal of the streetcar buildout expense is the increased cost of this much deeper railbed which will impact sewers, water lines and other underground utilities. Again, you may have known all this before but it is starting to look like the streetcar is just a Trojan horse for light rail."
