Would there be freight trains on the line during TEX Rail operating hours?

 

Looking at the Haltom City railroad interchange (on satellite), I suppose it's likely more freight trains will pass Beach Street Station than any other station.

The term "SOMA" reminds me of the term "EADO" in Houston. It's a "hip" marketing name that nobody likes.

Went on Sunday... the performance stages were plenty crowded.

 

Way more people than chairs to sit in.

The pedestrian bridge looks like it would be annoying to use. They have ground-level walkways to cross railroad tracks at other stations, so I'm not sure why this station is different.

 

 

 

On a side note, the name of this station seems to switch between "Beach Street" and "Mercantile Center" every other week.

 

I'm more familiar with "Beach Street," so I'd like to see them stick with the former.

Could do without things like SkyHouse honestly

The SkyHouse in Dallas is ugly because it has identical twins in other cities? :huh:

 

Sounds like Dallas ought to stick with low-rise apartment buildings. No two low-rise buildings are identical.
