Whatever it costs to alter the alignment of the Crosstown Expressway project will be a savings compared to what will be lost if the Crosstown project ruins Union Station's yard, said Garl B. Latham, president of Latham Railway Services.
Latham worked for years for Dallas' DART passenger rail system. Officials for Amtrak and the city of Dallas greatly underestimated how much room they would need to build a multi-modal transportation hub out of that city's Union Station. The Dallas facility is close to the Hyatt hotel, which had sought to expand by purchasing more of the station's property. Now the city would like to expand the train facility, but there is no more room. "I would encourage anything that could be done," said Latham.

About Garl B. Latham Garl Boyd Latham is a career Railroader, with almost 40 years of professional experience in both freight and passenger operations. Garl is the owner of Latham Railway Services, a Texas-based planning and consulting firm. Recent work has included the design of intermodal freight terminals, the evaluation and testing of Maintenance-of-Way construction materials, and a comprehensive study of potential intercity passenger train routes throughout Texas and the southwestern United States. Among notable past projects were feasibility and engineering studies for the proposed Dallas, Southeastern and Gulf Railway, and the Texas Boxcar Company (TexBox), as well as the design and development of various model and toy trains. His background includes 10 years with the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak) and 5 years at Dallas Area Rapid Transit, where he received the "Golden Star" - DART's highest-level employee award. Garl has served on the boards of many professional and advocacy organizations, such as the National Association of Railroad Passengers, the Southwest Railroad Historical Society and MobilityDallas. In the course of his career, he has made numerous radio, television and personal appearances throughout North America. Garl is currently Vice President of the Texas Association of Railroad Passengers. A respected railroad historian, Garl has written many articles on Post-World War II-era passenger train services, while assisting countless others in their quest for accurate and entertaining information regarding railroading's colourful past. He is considered one of the foremost authorities on classic Santa Fe Railway passenger operations - especially their famed flagship train, the Super Chief. To date, he has traveled over 350,000 miles by train. A native of Dallas and a fifth-generation Texan, Garl currently resides near San Antonio (Bexar County) with his wife Michele and their daughters Gracie and Phoebe. Garl B. Latham Garl B. Latham Garl B. Latham I have my own very strong opinions related to running passenger trains on freight railroads and, in my opinion, Garl hits the nail precisely on the head when he asserts that "true" HSR operations require dedicated tracks and ROW. "Blaine, you're as thoughtful as Garl.

Latham Garl B. Latham Blaine and Garl: Would either of you like to comment on the fact that with the exception of the U.S. and Canada, rail infrastructure is considered a strategic asset of the state and is owned by the state. I don't regard this as rebuttal to anything, but do hope it is informative as to why we have the dichotomies that led Garl to start this thread.
