Trains Magazine is reporting that Colorado Pacific Railroad is making another bid to obtain the former Denver & Rio Grande Western Tennessee Pass line through the Colorado Rockies from Union Pacific, and this time says it will operate passenger service as one of several moves to gain support for its effort.Your guess is as good as mine as to what that will do to help their cause. Funny thing, later on it mentions that UP is in negotiations with Rio Grande Pacific. That company, it says, ...operates short line railroads, is the contract operator of Denton’s A-Train commuter rail service, and is involved in the effort to build the Uinta Basin Railway to transport crude oil from a remote part of Utah. So both CP and RGP are interested in the line from UP, but only to haul freight, initially. From what I can tell, CDOT is trying to get them to offer passenger service to help with commuters who work in the ski towns.
