I've had the dream for a very long time that some day there could be an express train running on the CP tracks to connect High River, De winton, Okotoks and a couple of the south LRT stations directly to downtown. Would provide a rail based option for those living south of the city and in the southern end as well to get downtown without the cattle car experience of the LRT.
Problem is that I don't have the money or the wherewithal to find the right connections at the province and CP Rail to even discuss a pilot project. DMU's have run on the line before (aka the Discotrain Regiosprinter back in 1996) and the technology has matured and even runs in service today in Ottawa as the O-Train.
Anyone able to provide some guidance on this?
