I loved the link and I hope this train becomes a reality. But the numbers on costs in just this one link don't add up, which brings up the question why?
Private money available $300 million to fund half.
Public money match needed $300 nillion to fund the remaining half.
$300 million plus $300 million equals $600 million.
Later in the article, the costs per kilometer is stated as $5 million.
The article states it is 128 kilometers between Calgary and Banff.
$5 million per kilometer times 128 kilometers equals $640 million.
$600 million does NOT equal $640 million
Where is the remaining $40 million going to come from?
Maybe the writer of the article made a typo, but if not, their math is horrible.
