For the life of me, I can’t understand why the TRE and TexRail cuts or suspended service on bad driving days.

Hamm Creek Park, in Johnson County. West of Rio Vista. North Texas.
200 miles out Lake Eufaula, in Oklahoma, on 75.
500 miles Zapata, TX. High dessert over looking the Rio Grande. On a clear day you can see the Sierra Madre mountains in Mexico.

#135868 Texas A&M to build urban satellite campus in Fort Worth

My niece Councilwoman Beck, graduated from A&M Law in DTFW. I’m sure she is proud of this expansion for A&M and Fort Worth.

#135014 Travis Avenue Baptist Church

Here’s a little unknown fact about the building. Back in the late 70’s the building was almost demolished by a very large water heater that built up a very high pressure and blew the place up. At that time I was working at the local Safeway store across the street. Several people were injured in the blast, but the building was able to withstand the blast.

#133163 Fort Worth Tower Crane Count

Posted by Randall on 12 July 2021 - 04:30 PM

Nothing new on that corner. The crane is still up. The two cranes at the American Airlines Hotel are still up. There is some movement on the property but not the buildings. The tallest of the two looks like some interior work has been done since the cranes stopped working over the last year.

There is a working crane at UTA. They are adding another science building.

The River District had the one crane working last week.

Cooks crane is stand tall.
Six up and three working.

#132903 Meacham Airport

Posted by Randall on 06 July 2021 - 08:49 AM

The question I have is the airport able to handle CPS? If Breeze Airline decided to make Fort Worth, a destination, it would be limited to the number of aircraft and passengers the current facility could handle. Outside boarding would be just great in August. Do any of you remember the parking issues the airport had when Fort Worth Airlines, was operating at Meacham? If Fort Worth was ever interested in CPS, they need to make improvements for this 20 years ago. I would think Meacham would need between 15 and 20 gates for starters. Remember what Kevin Costner said, If you build it, they will come.

Dont get me wrong, I would love to have CPS closer to home. I was in Washington DC, last week. Fort Worth would only have to do just a little bit to beat gates 1-9 at Ronald Regan Washington National

#130838 Cool Amarillo Video

Posted by Randall on 13 March 2021 - 08:51 AM

Three buildings remind me of my childhood in Amarillo. The old ANB building now known as Chase, the Santa Fe and the Harding Hotel building. Every summer on the last day of school, we would catch the FW&D Railroad and ride to see my Grandparents who lived in Amarillo. My father worked for the FW&D so we ride free on his Company pass. While in A town, I would help my grandfather out with his business, and I made 5.00 a week. Many things in this video remind me of my summer home. The Sunday before school started we would ride the train back to Fort Worth. When I was young back in the early 60’s living on Travis Av. I always wonder if those summer trips to Amarillo, keep me out of trouble. My grandparents house had a water cooler in the front room that would freeze you out at night, Andy he next morning we would watch the weather, and the weather man would talk about the overnight low in Fort Worth, it made me glad I was spending my summer nights in Amarillo.

Would this be the first step for transit services in Arlington? Light rail to the stadiums from the host of new hotels in Downtown.

Dallas has always been the city that will. Fort Worth has always been the city that could but wouldn’t.

Repost from DOC Thread -
Before we get too far afield, this discussion is good except that it really isn't directly tied to Downtown Fort Worth or Downtown Dallas. I could imagine that if the discussion is centered around the suburbs v downtown, then maybe Okay.  It becomes a ball of yarn trying to untangle and follow the posts when several aspects (transit, downtown office occupancy, suburban projects) get lumped into the same line of discussion like coleslaw.
Dylan point about transitless surburbia is on point in regards to Allen.  Allen refuses to joint or support transit; instead it builds $100M High School Stadium.

Football, is the King in Texas.
