It’s private money so why not and good luck to them. Yet still I doubt it:
Now there are only six trains per week from Houston, three headed west to Los Angeles, three east to New Orleans. The service to San Antonio leaves at 6.55pm and arrives at 12.05am: a 225-mile journey that can be made more cheaply, quickly and frequently by bus.
Yet if a private company succeeds in its bold ambition, the city famous as the hub of big oil will one day be a beacon of public transportation: connected to Dallas with Japanese-style bullet trains zipping at 205mph on new track to new stations.
Train travel is, by it’s very nature, point to point. And yet Dallas and Houston are both sprawling megapolii with no actual one point which is the city nor the centre.
Unconvinced to say the least.
