A look at Solutionary Rail, a people-powered campaign to electrify America's railroads and open corridors to clean and renewable energy.
United States citizens have long bemoaned the sad state of our rails. As an avid rail rider myself, I've traveled across our beautiful country by train more times than I can count. Its amazing. The rail lines are national (and neglected) treasures. You can see the heart and soul of the United States from these routes less-traveled. Also, when riding trains, you hear and see your fellow Americans in ways you never do while shuffling through airport security or crammed into your tiny airplane seat.
Revitalizing rail travel holds some unusual bonuses, such as a deepened understanding of the vast terrain and tangible unique diversity of this nation.
