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.
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

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

Texas Central, developers of the state’s first high-speed train, announced today that it has marked a significant milestone in its land option program, the result of collaborative and ongoing engagements with property owners and stakeholders along the project’s potential route.

This is getting heated. All the anti-train bills made it out of committee and go to the Texas Senate floor TODAY! If you live in Texas call you state senator TODAY. These bills could not only kill the TCR, but will probably stop any normal commuter rail transportation in Texas if not already built.
https://www.tribtalk...assenger-trains Passenger rail as a transportation option for Texans is usually ignored by the Legislature without a second thought. Not this session. More than two dozen bills filed would not only marginalize trains for Texas but could kill off both private and public projects.
http://www.ipi.org/i...ral-rail-project In Texas, some conservatives wrongly think that opposition to high speed rail is a conservative principle. This is like saying that opposition to trucks, or cell phones, is a conservative principle. These may be preferences, but they aren’t principles. A principle is a timeless truth or proposition that helps us make decisions or choose behaviors. And opposition to high speed rail is not a conservative principle.
Here's a link for to the Texas Senate. Calling takes less than 5 minutes. Tell them to vote NO on Senate bills 975, 977, 979, 980 and 981
