seancb >> Elevated trains are NOT light rail. Elevated lines do not bring the same influx of investment as street level LRT.

These lines sure look line "light rail" to me. They run on tracks, they carry people from point A to point B, they are not elevated and they were established many, many decades ago. If these lines were not sufficient to attract investment and people from 1950-80, why do you think this was? And in what way are these new, "true" light rail lines any different?

Are the new light rail trains filled with some sort of "magic" that makes people flock to wherever they are in operation?

Please explain how NEW light rail is different and superior to old light rail?
