Cadiz Inc. is pleased to announce that it has entered into a new trackage rights agreement with the Arizona & California Railroad Company (“ARZC”) that will facilitate the development of regularly scheduled steam train excursions through the celebrated Mojave Desert between Cadiz, California and Parker, Arizona, which would be one of the longest steam train excursion routes in the United States.

The proposed new steam train operation, named the Cadiz Southeastern Railway (“CSER”), will be powered by water made available from the Cadiz Valley Water Conservation, Recovery & Storage Project (“Cadiz Water Project”) and, following the completion of additional permitting, will also feature a new museum and cultural center at the Cadiz Ranch property dedicated to the promotion of local desert and railroad history.

Lots of talk about where the water will come from but nothing about how it's going to be heated. The California EPA is going after smaller and smaller sources of air pollution. I can't imagine how a black smoke belching locomotive could pass the environmental review.
