MONTPELIER, Vermont — AllEarth Rail, the company planning to initiate a private commuter rail service in the Burlington area, received 10 of its newly purchased, self-propelled passenger rail cars last week, Vermont Business Magazine reported.

The cars, built in the 1950s, were purchased from Dallas Area Rapid Transit, where they were in operation between 1996 and 2012, the report said.

A recent analysis put start-up costs for a St Albans-Burlington-Montpelier commuter rail system at $301 to $363 million, including as much as $189 million for rolling stock, according to VBM.
