A double track would result in much more traffic not less. And the number of extra long and disruptive freight trains we could expect to increase dramatically. Worst of all, it would facilitate incredibly long, dangerous oil trains, up to one and a third miles in length, to pass through our neighborhood --which is not the case currently. And don't be fooled by regulations. Even if regulations are eventually put into place, regulations can be changed as quickly as politicians and other government officials.
