  1. It would be nice to have HSR to Galveston, but I don't think the passenger volumes would be there. The next leg I see from Houston is to New Orleans - a 5 hour car trip condensed down into a 2 hour train ride, with people from both Houston & Dallas being potential customers (transfer in Houston) The other two lines are the 35 corridor, though getting the ROW would be hard, and from Houston to San Antonio
  2. This could be associated with all the new drainage work the city has been working on downtown
  3. I like the way these actually try to interact with the street grid more than a median style transit route; the shepherd transit center is a good idea, but it would mean losing that Saltgrass steakhouse. The studemont stop will be close to Kroger - I didn't even realize that before. Could be a nice way to do a grocery run for downtown residents, depending on how well the transit center connects to it
  4. It looks like it will be a pet store from the HCAD listing It says year built 2020, style "kennels"
  5. The taller Texas donuts seem to switch to metal framing after passing 4 or five floors
  6. I know they want to have a brewery, but they missed out the chance to have "Frost Town Ice House"
  7. I poked around on HCAD, but it looks like its just part of the 59 ROW. I wonder if it could be related to the GRB access ramp?
  8. Maybe a third vending machine
  9. I would guess that instead of just making the Sunset limited more frequent, it's a seperate train (maybe the Alamo Flyer or something) that would be daily (or more frequent) service. And hopefully faster, though that would take a lot of track work I think
  10. There's already one on OST 3915 Old Spanish Trail, Houston, TX 77021 https://www.google.com/maps/place/Dairy+Queen/@29.7079226,-95.3743537,14.5z/data=!4m8!1m2!2m1!1sdairy+queen!3m4!1s0x0:0x19d3246435ccc0d6!8m2!3d29.702862!4d-95.3570098
  11. This morning came out with a proposed new route map by 2035 with the current proposed funding increase, and it seems to include "new services" in the Texas triangle New service (presumably much more frequent) to San Antonio, and new service to Dallas via College Station. I wonder how they think they'll do that - using existing lines? Will they pay UP or BNSF to upgrade them? Will they keep the Amtrak shack or are they planning on consolidating with TCR? I know one of the big bottlenecks in Houston for trains is a crossing downtown called tower 26 that is s
  12. Does it come with the abandoned minivan?
  13. I could use a good soft pretzel - my smoke detector can attest that it's hard to make at home
