Anderson: before you could have even a contingent condemnation, the land must be surveyed. The landowners in question are arguing that TCR has no authority to enter their land for the survey, despite a Texas statute expressly allowing it, because it's not a functioning railroad.

In the past such problems were resolved by acquiring a token railroad company with a mile of narrow gauge track somewhere with a decrepit engine and a caboose

But if TCR did so, the opponents of HSR would post photographs of the lousy track and ancient train online and claim them as examples of HSR as an antiquated choo-choo. It wouldn't fool rail supporters or reasonable neutral people, but it's not intended to.

If you need to own a railroad to build a railrtoad, where did the first railroad come from? :)
