Good luck to Detroit. Great article and pics. We are going through same here in St Louis.
Losing population. Every census population drops.

That's a wonderful article. It's nice to read something positive about Detroit...there has been nothing but negative the last 20-30 years. Wouldn't it be grand if the trains did return - all across America! That's pretty unlikely, but the resurgence of Detroit and some other once-thriving cities is a real possibility. Sure hope it happens!

This article is from the BBC. How come we don't see American media issuing such information? Are we leaving it to foreign interests to take over our news and economy, as happened to American automobiles?
