I think that it is a better idea than more of the same old thing, being more lanes on the highway. All it takes is one idiot trucker and you lose an hour of traffic on the highway. If the railway also includes a car or two for "express" cargo, they could help pay for the cost of running it, and provide a more efficient way to get packages to and from Denver without relying on trucks.

yes it's a great idea. I drive from Denver to Dillon twice or more a month and the traffic is terrible.

That would be an enormously expensive boondoggle. Were this a inning proposition, private industry would've jumped all over this "opportunity. The fact that they haven't emblazons this in neon lettering - this is a loser.
