Just as the ridership numbers for the Hiawatha light-rail line far exceeded initial expectations, the ridership numbers for the North Star commuter rail service managed to be slightly higher than projected despite two trips having to be cancelled due to mechanical glitches.

Thanks go to Jesse Ventura for pushing this through over the objections of then-House leader Tim Pawlenty (who amazingly switched to being a “supporter” of the line once it was a done deal). Thank you, Jesse!
