CONVERT ALL TRACKS TO STANDARD GUAGE NOW


The planning is for long term eventually having all the railroad having new standard gauge. Right now, rehab the old gauge - because it is less costs/quicker to get up and operating - then as the capital required to do new gauge comes in convert available lines to new gauge.

It's one thing to have vision on what lines need to be constructed but to give no attention to the capital needed is misleading. Please address the amount of capital needed because it is significant enough to play a hand in the decision making. It was cheaper to build these railroads in the 19th and early 20th century. This is the 21st century and infrastructure like this is expensive today.
