  • Who keeps talking about the Dallas train as if it’s ever going to happen? Low oil prices, openly hostile government position on the matter, and let’s not forget basic financial mathematics on this thing, will never allow this to happen.
    I honestly think the people in charge know this and the only reason they keep pretending and spinning their wheels is because they’re still drawing salaries and stashing some of the initial investment money in the Cayman Islands. That’s what I would have done.

  • I just read the full report and I don’t see why the DH-2 option (http://images.houstonpress.com/media/pdf/final_alignment_alternatives_analysis_report.pdf) can’t work. The right of way is there and there’s plenty of room for parking near the Burnett TC that’s already on the METRORail as opposed to the NWTC.
