this could have been Alamogordo but noooo it'll upset the old farts here. Alamogordo will never amount to anything with a corrupt money taking local government such as with holding water deposits since 85 and corrupt commissioners abusing powers for there own business's they own. the FBI needs to look into Alamogordo big time.

This is a nice thing. Now the folks from the north who need work can come down here to work at MacDonalds, and we can send our folks up north to work at Burger King. Hopefully a few hundred people with get jobs, but of course they will all come from out of state to do the job. As we always tend to sell out ur neighbors for a dollar. Gee, I wonder where the builders for the space port came from??

It is time this was started! Even though it takes the yards away from Texas and El Paso, southern New Mexico needs the jobs and the tax base increased. The yard workers will probably move to New Mexico to shorten their travel time. The other area in El Paso will probably sold off and someone else will have to put up with the cleanup. IT is a smart move.

holy moly, red frejoles.....this is great news!

OTR trucks are being robbed for 4 bucks a gallon for diesel. Rail sees this crack in the bridge and is taking their leap.

You and I shop in the cheapest grocery stores, buy the cheapest gas,.....so does the railroad industry.

I have lived near the RR tracks for over 15 years.

The worst thing would certainly be NO train over the tracks, no trucks over the road.

Drill the US for our OWN natural energy resources..
WTF....we're eventually going to quit drilling eventually anyway....

Back off the mamby pamby conservation rhetoric and cut off OPEC dependency. Look at what is happening now with ONLY civilian uprising in OPEC nations now. Military would only be lots worse again and again.

You know this and more.

There are plenty of alternative resources licking their chops waiting.....for what?

For this. Arabian oil implosion.

Sounds like the Railroad Co. is baiting New Mexico. If they get a reduction in fuel Tax to operate here the Taxpayers will subsidize the Railroad. Money will have to come from someone else not the Corporation.

Maybe those with the real means and who don't live near the tracks, could care less about your sniveling?
If you're so concerned about the future of the railroad, do like your relatives...drink a little and walk the tracks. Eventually, you'll get your great reward, Casey.
Choo=choo. And go away.

Get back into your closet, gimp. Take your flashlight and magazines.
