Missouri Rail Untitled

Here are my suggestions for suburban and interurban main line passenger rail services making use of the existing rail infrastructure - in other words the current Union Pacific Railroad and Burlington Northern & Sante Fe Railway lines in the St. Louis Metropolitan area and between St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri. My vision is that though receiving substantial public funding these would be primarily commercial services, perhaps run by the companies that own the lines, as was the case before the 1960s. The main problem would be to find creative ways of financing these services that would give the operating companies a sufficient profit to make it worth their while to run the trains.

For existing Amtrak passenger services in Missouri see the MoRail website.
