Perhaps you remember in 2010 when the U.S. Department of Transportation took back $400 million it had awarded to Ohio for a passenger rail train connecting Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Dayton because then Governor-elect John Kasich (R) said “No thanks!” to Ohio’s inter-city rail project, thus turning his back on the federal investment.

However, in a statement in the Ohio Rail Map, Gov. Kasich boasts that the state’s 5,200 miles of commercial rail lines rank fourth in the U.S. While passenger rail fell clear off the totem pole of priorities, Kasich, rolling out a welcome mat for industry, states:  “Ohio’s world-class freight rail system sets our state apart as a business destination and provides assets that few—if any—other states can offer.”

Have you explored rail tracks passing through your neighborhood? What’s the strangest thing you found?
