With a new administration in D.C., it's time to think outside of the box because passenger rail's survival just may depend on it

Addendum: The Rio Grande Corridor

The schedule is based on this entry


Operator notes:
Amtrak
There would be no changes to the California Zephyr along this portion of its route.

Rail Consortium West
The Texas Zephyr is a Salt Lake City-Dallas-Houston train that will be extended to New Orleans. For its stops in the suburban Denver area, the TZ would utilize either Englewood or downtown Littleton nearby the light rail station to handle passengers traveling to/from points south while either Sheridan Blvd or 41st Street will handle passengers traveling to/from western points.

Rocky Mountain Rail
This is a (hypothetical) regional organization composed of ID, MT, WY, CO, UT and NM that oversees local and regional passenger rail service. The Prospector is an all-sleeper train. Most of its other routes would be daytime trains.

The Desert Wind Group
A coalition of rail fans and businessmen forms an independent group in the event that Amtrak deems a Desert Wind restoration between Chicago and Los Angeles via Las Vegas infeasible. The train would use LaSalle Street Station instead of Union Station as its eastern terminus.
