Maybe they can position a suitable garbage dump hill shaped like Mount Fuji, next to the tracks. :D

They could dig under Bardwell Lake, and have Mt. Fuji mosaics in the tunnel. :unsure:

They could take a picture of a bullet train with a high school or college football stadium in the background. That's Texas
