Matt Dellinger of The Infrastructurist brings us this article on his adventures on the California Zephyr, a train full of New Urbanists bound for Denver. There were more than a few high-profile individuals from the world of New Urbanism on the train: Robert Davis, the developer of Seaside; John Anderson, a Born Again New Urbanist after he completed the Mall of America; and William Lind, the pipe-smoking, conservative supporter of transit and urbanism. A variety of issues were discussed, many planning related (such as using California’s new laws on green communities and the impact of cheap oil on America), some less so (such as whether or not computers are going to Hell). A fun read.
