It was the talk of the Brazos Valley in the early 90's. Now there's a growing movement to resurrect high speed rail in Texas.
The latest proposal is known as the "Texas T-Bone." It comes through Bryan-College Station with connections in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Austin.
One of the big changes from past plans is that train stations would be located at airports.
Supporters hope to raise up to $18 billion dollars in private funding to have high-speed trains running by 2020.
When bullet trains were first discussed back in the 90's, the idea ran into some stiff opposition in the Brazos Valley. Most of the concern was from rural residents worried about how trains would affect property values and quality of life.
