I'm more worried about rail access than RTD. The Ski Train was always third in line. Freight first, Amtrak second, ski train third on that line. Union Pacific makes it extremely difficult to do business on that line.

They are going to have to have a temp station for Amtrak anyway during the Union Station redevelopment. It would be easy to get a second line for the Ski Train in there. The Mayor and the Gov can take on RTD, they may have less success with UP and public perception about underwriting the Ski Train business.
