    Fort Collins – Denver is seriously overdue. And of course it’s the same right-of-way which would host Denver-Boulder-Longmont service.

    Hope someone has the sense to realize this makes more sense than burning money on pointless widening of I-25.

      Once we’re talking about that kind of distance though, is 79mph commuter rail really enough? What if we wanted to expand it later on to Cheyenne and CO Springs or even Albuquerque, 79mph would definitely not cut it. I’m thinking 110mph or more, like from Chicago to St. Louis.
