Dear editor, (Re: Proposed rail plan `is on the right track', July 21) This is a great idea, unfortunately, it probably won't happen, again. Sorry for the pessimism, but I have traveled from Montreal to Kitchener since 1968 (yearly until 1984), and I am holding my breath. I now live in Brampton, with my wife in Ottawa, and have relatives in Kitchener. Sounds like the same "high-speed" train from Windsor to Quebec City quagmire. You need a two-track dedicated rail line for passenger trains, and with priority. I was heading west from Toronto to Kitchener on one trip, and not even five minutes east of the Kitchener station, where the two tracks for some reason become one-- just like east of Bramalea station-- we waited 45 minutes for a freight train to pass. How pathetic! This study is "All talk, no walk", again. So surprise me by having this actually done. I will be waiting. David Logan, Brampton
