Nice photos.  How is TexRail different from the Trinity Rail Express between Dallas and Ft Worth?
Thanks.

TEXRail is the pretty pony. TRE is the heavy-duty workhorse.
TEXRail uses brand-new Stadler FLIRT DMU trains. TRE uses aging/rebuilt F59/F59PHI locomotives and Bombardier bi-level coaches.
TEXRail conductors wear formal conductors uniforms. TRE crews wear golf shirts and baseball caps.
TEXRail serves the airport directly; no change of trains, no shuttle buses. The TRE stops at a station 4 miles south of the airport and requires two changes of buses to get to the terminals.
TEXRail runs 7 days a week. The TRE runs Monday-Saturday only, on most Sundays in November, but never on hoildays.
