Heads up for anyone going to Dallas, double tracking will mean a bus bridge for a couple of days. Only will effect trains between Centerport and West Irving.

The motor wasnt very loud, but it sure seemed like a lot of flange squealing for what appeared to be straight track. I wonder if liteweight cars tend to do that more than heavyweight cars? BART in San Francisco is so bad they need to issue hearing protection to the passengers.

Also, Dallas is 385 square miles while Fort Worth is 349 square miles.

However, Dallas has 45 square miles of water and Fort Worth only has 7 square miles of water, so Fort Worth has a slight edge in land area.
