It's good news-bad news in the Sooner State:
The OK DOT selected Watco to operate the Oklahoma City-Tulsa rail line last month. As a result, Iowa Pacific will provide train service between the two areas, possibly as early as November. Initially, there will be shuttle buses that will serve the two cities, but actual train service to OKC and the capital could happen if the pilot project is successful.
The Tulsa-OKC study continues to be evaluated. It seems as if the state is determined to commit death by feasibility study for this particular corridor, which shouldn't take two years to complete.
