As you know, Texas Central made some bold claims to the Surface Transportation Board. Well, we think it is time for them to put their money where their mouth is. The Board procedures allow us to conduct discovery, so we sent Texas Central questions and requests for documents. How much is a ticket going to cost? Will guns be allowed? What about flammable liquids? How much private financing do you have in place? Where did you get it from? Did you do any research to come up with your projection of 4 million passengers a year? Can we see a copy of your business model? What about your construction schedule?
Shouldn’t Texas Central be able to answer these simple questions? And shouldn’t they have to produce all documents, facts, and evidence supporting their claims?
Let’s see if they will respond to our requests, or just make up more excuses and continue to hide information.
Here are the questions and document requests we sent them:
