after 241 years, it's time for these united states to establish a comprehensive, uniform national transport-energy-environmental policy!

Long Live the Great American Railroad

At one time, the domestic railroad industry was widely respected and viewed as a vital part of American life. Trains were commonplace and integral to the function of most cities and towns. Sadly, these things are no longer generally regarded as true; however, if we - and our children - are to enjoy a future where passenger transport remains both high in quality and enviable in reliability, the very idea of a "drive-or-fly society" must be relegated to the past!

An overarching appreciation for railway technologies and services can be restored, but it will take something we've been lacking in these United States ever since the end of World War II: a strong and unified political will!

The Texas Association of Railroad Passengers is a membership-based, non-profit group dedicated to the ongoing health of existing passenger train operations and the active support of people who use them. In addition, TEX-ARP remains deeply involved with all those - individuals and groups, companies and agencies - who seek to increase the public's awareness of railroading in all its glorious forms.
