The long-planned rail link between Denver International Airport and Union Station in downtown Denver passed a milestone last week when rail cars pulled into the airport station for the first time.
The Regional Transportation District’s electric-powered East Rail Line will now undergo an extended series of tests before the trains start carrying passengers in 2016.
Inbound passengers who take the train downtown will be able to connect at the newly refurbished Union Station to local light-rail lines, Amtrak trains and regional bus lines.
That’s not the only big project at Denver’s airport.
Anyone who’s passed through lately might have noticed a big new building that looks like a giant moustache at one end of the main terminal.
That’s a new 519-room Westin hotel, due to open in November 2015.
