"Railroading Paradise" Captures the Six Month Journey of Honolulu Rail Project

For six months in 2012 Anthony Aalto, Chair of the O'ahu Group of the Sierra Club and co-producer Mike Hinchey explored the arguments for and against the biggest civil engineering project in Hawaii.



It's only a tiny corner of a tiny island lost in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, but the battle for the future of the lands that stretch six miles around the Kahuku Point coastline on O'ahu is iconic.



There's a luxury condominium tower rising near Ala Moana Beach Park between Waikiki and Downtown Honolulu.  The penthouse, which comes with its own swimming pool, will retail for a cool million.
