So this picture was taken at the train tracks in West Louisville near Coles Place. I called it hopelessness first because of just how dead it looks…like train tracks to nowhere (destination unknown). Additionally, I call it hopeless because it’s such a lost opportunity. We have these train tracks all over Louisville, but it doesn’t serve the people of Louisville in any real way. This could be a light rail system to improve public transportation, it could be an Amtrak so that people could travel. Problem is, we as a community aren’t leveraging this resource in a way that can be helpful, so it sits…and like many other spots in the west, someone outside of the community benefits.
