Colorado Future Front Range Rail

This is not quite a fantasy transit map — there is an actual, official proposal to build intercity rail in the urban corridor at the foot of the Rocky Mountains — but this is not that proposal. That proposal would have high-speed trains either bypass the largest city in the corridor, or serve it by sharing tracks with light rail, at a cost of $10 billion or more. This proposal assumes conventional passenger trains on the Consolidated Main Line through South Metro Denver, which is used by dozens of freight trains daily. Feasible? It seems worthy of study. (By the way, this map also assumes a rerouted Amtrak Southwest Chief.)
