Officials were all smiles Dec. 31, as they cut the ribbon on new TEXRail service from Fort Worth to the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. Plans were for the rail line to be ready to roll on Saturday, Jan. 5 with free service through the first of February.

“Clearance has not been granted from the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) for TEXRail to operate along the entire 27-mile corridor,” a city news release said.
