A passenger station proposed to be built in Grimes County would be the only stop on the rail line. Brady Redwine, a vice president for Texas Central, said the proposed Grimes County station is an opportunity to have “efficient roadway access and connection options for passengers coming to and from the facility.” Company officials also said the project would have massive positive ramifications on the surrounding counties and communities via the creation of jobs and generation of tax revenue.
