    Regarding front range rail, isn’t BNSF about to sell their yarf in Denver due to lack of need from declining usage? That would imply space available on their tracks for commuter trains.

    Amtrak would be an interesting option as opposed to widening highways. But seems like commuter rail managed by CDOT or other state agency would be more beholden to the stakeholder in the state than Amtrak who is under constant attack by this current congress.

    Of course it would cost more upfront to build the rail facilities, buy and test trains, and create the general organization. But a good candidate for a P3. Of course with Colorado’s tax constraints who knows maybe Amtrak would be the only plausible solution.
