Plans for a train to connect downtown Denver to DIA were underway. A $450,000 feasibility study and federal environmental assessment were being conducted, with the results due November 30, 1993. Union Pacific had spent $350,000 preparing a design for the new track, which could be constructed in 13 to 16 months.
The major hurdle would be the financing, which was estimated between $70 million and $120 million, based upon hourly trips or 20-minute trips. The more frequent the trips, the higher the cost.
The feasibility study also considered the possibility of baggage check-in at each of the stops. This would require financial support and management assistance from the airlines.
