  4. I know this is a Houston forum, but I didn't see any topic about the ongoing saga of Austin getting light rail (although they're calling it urban rail b/c it'll share the road w/ cars while in downtown). http://impactnews.com/austin-metro/central-austin/austins-urban-rail-plan-could-cost-1.4-billion/ Here's some more literature that I've found: http://www.austinchronicle.com/news/2013-12-13/urban-rail-which-way-to-connect/ http://www.austinchronicle.com/news/2014-04-18/project-connect-central-corridor-options/ Ben Wear does a good as the transportation writer for the Statesman and I'm su
  5. Just got this press release. East and Southeast Tracks Tested with Trains This giant diesel-powered tow truck can operate on tracks, or on pavement. It is used when electrical current is not available to power a train.

The unit is a welcome addition to a very busy fleet which this year has surpassed 90 million boardings. This train, and the 18 others to follow, will allow METRORail to carry more passengers. Its low floor enables passengers to board at street lev
  7. I was looking on the GOMETRORAIL website and checking out the construction updates and maps. This is probably been said before but I think it would be cool if some how metro could connect the Uptown Rail at Northwest Transit center with the end of the Downtown rail at the Hobby Center.
