This paper highlights many varied reuse examples for abandoned freight rail corridors within the state of Texas, including for highway development, transit development, recreational trails, and for resumption of freight rail service. Several case studies present these examples. This paper also describes the extent to which abandoned rail lines in the state have been lost through abandonment and discusses the importance of preserving such corridors intact, when possible, for future transportation needs should any become available in the future.
