It is perfectly OK to have old functioning systems, not everything has to be 'updated' to a perceived 'first world' status.

Perhaps it is such thinking that has got most of the world into such levels of debt!

I agree with that. Things should be maintained for as long as they work well. I just feel like the Boston trains may be nearing the end of their usable lifespan.
