Denver’s RTD’s north corridor should display rail cars, Thornton official says (Denver Post)

December 20, 2012 – A move by the Regional Transportation District to buy six new commuter rail cars for the first segment of the planned North Metro Corridor is a good one, says a local official. But RTD should go one step further and put those rail cars on display to turn skeptics of Adams County FasTracks into boosters, said Thornton transportation manager Gene Putman. “This will be a powerful piece of education,” Putman told the RTD Board of Directors on Tuesday night. “Let people come and touch and feel these cars.” Also on Tuesday, the board signed off on a plan to raise at least $277 million by 2017 that will include funding to finish the 3.5 miles from the stock show to 72nd Avenue.
