Funny story

Met with a transport lady today. She had tons of insight and good info, but I loved this story about a railway in Rio that will long from now be the site of an elevated subway.

The rail line is basically not used not, and runs through lots of low-income areas, borderline favelas. To make sure that people don't literally build over the tracks, they send a mostly empty train across it twice per day.
