T seeks $100 million for commuter rail cars on TEX Rail/Cotton Belt line

@gdickson Texrail

The Fort Worth Transportation Authority wants to launch the TEX Rail/Cotton Belt line in 2016 with modern rail cars, and is seeking about $100 million in help from the Regional Transportation Council.

Wanna learn more about where the rail line would run and where the stations would be? Check out the Star-Telegram's interactive map.

I've already said quite a bit concerning this plan - the majority of which is contained in three separate essays, originally written for Progressive Railroading magazine's web site:

"Oh, to be compliant"


"The Cotton Belt conundrum"


"The Cotton Belt: an addendum to the conundrum"


This leaves me with little more to say...which, for me, is an unusual state of affairs!

Terrific writing, Garl. I'm going to explore some of those issues in an upcoming Cotton Belt story. Do you have time to talk by phone maybe on Monday or Tuesday? Shoot me an email and I'll send you my cellphone number.
