John Speller's Web Pages - Projected RailroadsSaint Louis to Tulsa
This projected service makes use of the old Frisco main line, and represents a more or less straight 400 mile run, joining several important cities. The populations, indeed, suggest that this line could prove considerably more profitable than the existing Saint Louis to Kansas City Amtrak run. The service might ultimately be extended beyond Tulsa to take in Dallas and Fort Worth in Texas.

John Speller's Web Pages - Projected RailroadsCamp Hill Line (Birmingham, England)
The stations on the old Midland Railway line between Kings Norton and Camp Hill have been closed for many years, though some of the buildings are still intact. A very useful suburban rail service could be provided between the former Great Western Moor Street station, now little used, and Kings Norton by building a new curve between Bordesley and Camp Hill. This would cost about £5,000,000.
