Several cities in western Colorado are teaming up to study the possibility of high-speed passenger rail service under the name the Rocky Mountain Rail Authority. Key cities participating include Steamboat Springs, Craig, and Hayden.

With rail lines along Interstates 70 and 25, the system could connect to similar networks already in the works in Utah and New Mexico, officials say. The I-70 line, which would link Colorado’s major ski resorts, could include a spur to Aspen and another to South Routt, Steamboat Springs, and Craig.
