THE SHIN KANSAN? National Corridors reports on plans for a high speed rail line running Cheyenne-Denver-Pueblo-Albuquerque. The proposal is to convert existing freight lines for passenger service and build new freight lines. One wonders if it wouldn't be easier to build a new high-speed passenger line (to hit Boulder on the way south and make an easier mountain crossing than Raton Pass) rather than attempt to rebuild the old Santa Fe - Colorado and Southern - Rio Grande Joint Line.
