A Las Vegas, Nev., company plans to help revive the Santa Fe Southern Railway excursion trains between the Santa Fe Railyard and Lamy, which stopped operating last year.

A train travel service known as X Train announced this week that it has entered a contract with the privately held Santa Fe Southern. The deal calls for X Train to provide “the capital necessary to bring the track and equipment operational,” while Santa Fe Southern will operate the tourist train.

    What ever happened to the Australian company supposedly planning to use the train as a test site for advanced hazard awareness and automated braking systems?
    Will they be in league with X Train Holdings?

    Blow your horns! It could save the lives of bicyclists, pedestrians, and motorists.

    I sure hope they can reclaim their original tradition of blowing their horns at the intersections. It is only four times a day and has a certain periodicity that can be as comforting as church bells in its own way. I love silence. Yet My heart soars with joy when I hear the occasional horns of our trains. After the horns we can appreciate our quietude with special enthusiasm.

    Now that Mayor Coss is gone, maybe his efforts to destroy Santa Fe Southern can be undone.
