We already had Rail from Loudoun...

...according to today's WAPO Loudoun section, the W&OD rail extended from Bluemont to Alexandria, and was discontinued in 1968 (its transit benefits replaced by an "improved" Rt. 7 highway system). Who knew? More forward-thinking Supervisors might have maintained the right-of-way according to available growth statistics (though there was significant support for this, losing out to Dominion Power's predecessors), and we'd have a rail system RIGHT NOW through the fastest-growing corridors of Northern Virgina. Hopefully our current Supervisors are thinking more than 5-10 years out...
