Why not add some money making space for Caltrain and other services to stations. See waiting rooms, restrooms, shops. You could build offices, retail, housing near the stations. Look at 908 Villa St. Why not take that old house and move it next to train station, might make a great Chamber of Commerce and MV Info Center.
