  •  Well (0+ / 0-)

    It isn't going west for sure.  Far too much resistance to that. And if you check out the sources cited by RBG less than 1% is going by rail now.  Yes if Canada devoted its entire infrastructure to this one project to the exclusion of the entire rest of its economy it could pull it off

    •  if you are willing to believe that aspect (0+ / 0-)

      of my sources, why do you deny the rest of the information is true?  

      Seriously, it is not difficult to ramp up rail transport at all.

      The cars are being built in Texas, and the scale we are talking about to equal the KXL pipeline involves running about one train every two hours.  

      You really have to check it out - CANADA DOES HAVE RAILROADS!  ALREADY!! in fact the country was built on them 150 years ago or whenever.

      But what might have been confusing you is that they sometimes call them railways instead of railroads.  Actually the same thing, however - same gauge and everything that we use.

      •  It isn't the rail roads (0+ / 0-)

        It is the cars and the capacity.  Even your source says that there is some ramp up time here and is clear that it drives up costs, which is critical.
