After decades of little to no use, rail service may return to the Tennessee Pass line.
The Colorado, Midland & Pacific Railway Company Thursday announced it has completed an agreement with the Union Pacific Railroad for commercial use on the line, which stretches from roughly Canon City to Eagle.
The Colorado, Midland is a subsidiary of the Rio Grande Pacific Corporation, which operates freight and passenger railroads in eight states.
One wonders what [new?] traffic source could attract the capital necessary to rehabilitate this line which has been mothballed since the mid-90s?
