This is old news, did the media just wake up to it or did the Uinta Basin news all of a sudden hit them?
UP wasn't interested and the STB struck down the application as imcomplete ie didn't show enough shipper needs.

A red flag in front of a bull, a steak in front of a pit bull, or a proposal to transport oil in front of the Sierra Club - all result in a nasty conflict:

Rio Grande Pacific is the planned operator of a $1.5 billion proposal for a new railroad connecting crude oil from Utah’s Uinta Basin with the national railway network. If the Uinta Basin Railway is built and Rio Grande Pacific acquires Tennessee Pass, three to 10 trains hauling crude oil could travel south through Utah to Grand Junction to Minturn, over Tennessee Pass and through the Upper Arkansas River Valley en route to refineries on the Gulf Coast. The federal government is conducting an Environmental Impact Statement studying the impacts of the roughly 85-mile Uinta Basin Railway project.

Where did you get your information on the Sierra Club--POTUS? I was a member of the SC and I recall that they prefer trains over road transport. Please post any respected source material to the contrary, as I want to be sure.
