More choices for better transportation

Holy ground

Like Moses, we are moved to remove our shoes even talking about the most revered of all railroad routes. (Only kidding, Altoona)

On the surface, this one looks like a bad idea for California taxpayers. The Bakersfield Californian has an extensive report, which is highlighted here.

State money may finance part of an $80 million expansion of railroad capacity over the Tehachapi Pass to move more goods from the Port of Oakland to consumers in other parts of the country.

The problem is that, despite 15 miles of new double track, the main loop will continue as a single line. Hence, the bottleneck continues. It may be that there is no actual solution here, and some smarter person may very well correct me on this one. Give it your best shot. I can handle it.
