Actually that is roughly the plot of the 1978 Superman movie (Christopher Reeve version).I think you're looking for a cross between "A View to a Kill" and "10.5".@PIMM I prefer the great conspiracy theory, like the James Bond movie trying to crack the San Andreas fault.Whats wrong with sky rail? It looks cool, noise isn't much of an issue I don't think as long as they do something for noise.There is nothing wrong with it to any rational person. The Liberal Party, though, has successfully convinced a few gullible NIMBYs that it's the end of human civilisation, and provides them with a platform to constantly and loudly criticise it.
They deserve to all have their homes acquired below market price for an enormous, quad-track trench, quite frankly.
All the land west of the trench sinks into the bay, and all the houses in Station St become waterfront properties.
A real estate bonanza. it is no longer NIMBY - it is YIMFY (yes in my front yard)
Sorry about the sunken houses - blame God, then insurance won't pay.
Does not Lex Luthor have his evil lair in an abandoned subway? Oh my god, it is all true! A rail-based property development conspiracy! Call the Herald Sun!
