    Hopefully the money really materializes in the upcoming years. For instance, New Mexico just getting $100,000 to create a rail plan seems pretty minimal. That’s basically enough to pay for 2 full-time people to work on doing thorough research for a plan over the course of a year. Then if you put a travel and small operations budget in there, those would not be very good salaries either. Wasn’t a criteria of the competition among states to win the grants a pledge to allocate matching funds? Maybe that would make things a little better.
