It's beautiful! Perhaps we should blanket train tracks with lawns - at least that'll create a lot of jobs for gardeners. Maybe if we're lazy, we can use astroturf ... Same effect from a distance without all that mowing.

I'm fairly sure those are trams, not trains.

Trams run through busy pedestrian areas all the time. They're just like a bus service, only on rails. They're not high-speed and - while it does happen sometimes - people rarely get hit by them. They soon learn not to dawdle on the tracks!

I really like the idea of having the tramlines go over grass. It would make little difference to the upkeep of the city if they have a lot of grassy areas to maintain.

Here in Colorado, the availability of water tends to be an issue, and I know it's the same in other parts of the country. I don't think this grass thing would be a good idea here.
