An Idaho engineering firm, a French company and a group of Texas businessmen have joined forces for the proposed construction of a $2.2-billion high-speed rail link from Houston to Dallas. The plan will be detailed in a series of news conferences today in Houston, Dallas and Austin. It is the first of at least two such plans that will be proposed to the Texas High-Speed Rail Authority. The second group, a West German consortium, is expected to announce its plans in a few weeks.

As country music pioneer Jimmie Rodgers once sang, Texas is "just waitin' for a train." But it's a train that Rodgers, who died in 1933, could never have imagined. The Texas High-Speed Rail Authority today will award a franchise to build the nation's first super-train system, a $5-billion marvel of engineering and design that eventually will enable passengers to travel between five major Texas cities at speeds of up to 200 m.p.h.

But she is not a leader with one of the county's high-status mainstream organizations--not, for example, the Philharmonic Society, the Pacific Symphony Assn., or, most prestigious of all, the Performing Arts Center.

Look past the goats, cattle and pigs that stray onto the lone railroadtrack that heads south into Mexico from San Ysidro's dusty railroad depot and you can see the impact that free trade portends for the United States and Mexico. Each weekday morning, U.S. and Mexican customs agents unlock a pair of worn padlocks on the rusted gate that blocks the aging track between San Ysidro and Tijuana.
