Sounds like we need a New Mexico counterpart to the Pittsburgh Subway...

I personally believe a passenger rail link from El Paso to Santa Fe via Las Cruces and Albuquerque would be a useful long term project worth planning and pursuing as money and resources become available.  I just don't think it's very likely to succeed in the current political environment.  There is a lot of money floating around right now but relatively little of it is likely to be earmarked for passenger rail.
