Well Texas is mainly BNSF and Union Pacific with Kansas now merging
with Canada to link up Canada, USA and Mexico with a single line. The purple is that route that runs thru East Texas. Imho, both Dallas and Ft. Worth don't need a rail yard in ATS. I'd rather see another depot take the place of the rail yard. That adds more diversity and something new. Something like Bell Helicopter or Lockheed. Lockheed is perhaps out though because its military primarily and SCS stays away from that.
With so many cities being spread out across Texas, I think we'll get enough train yards. Especially with getting some ports along the Texas coast. Add in the fact that Wyoming is bringing the rail industry so whatever that industry brings plus the cargo and options from the current rails and we'll be good. I really wish we could see more rail variety and larger cargo on rails and autoracks. We can pick this stuff up and take it to rail depots too. Not just from the factory. I'd love to see wind turbine cargo on rail cars and transport both blades and longer towers. The current tower cargo was disappointing to see. These are much longer than the 28' well of a lowboy. We should have something like this in the game:
Perhaps not as long but at least span the length of a dolly + lowboy without the booster/spreader. That would suffice.
Then of course add blades as cargo and where is the rotor at? Why didn't we get that cargo?
Texas has a MASSIVE
road network. Freeways and lanes everywhere. Can we get this cargo? There should be road construction like everywhere. Surely some god depots for construction can come.
Or even this? Texas has tons of mobile home retailers along the Interstates. The one we have is really not much of a challenge and not an American size mobile home. We need a single long mobile home and a double wide. If we can get Olthon Homes, we can get manufactured homes. They are quite popular here. I'd love to deliver to a mobile home park. They go well in sparse parts of the map like Wyoming, Idaho, Utah....remote locations/small towns. Give another divers load that does not require a license.

Texas is the first coastal state to join ATS since Washington. I wonder how many seaports we get.
I'm hoping for at least 3. Beaumont/Port Arthur, Houston/Galveston and Corpus Christi.

I think KLAX could come with the SoCal (Southern California) rebuild
I don't think so. As far as I understand the rebuild is mainly about the interstates (and maybe also about US roads), but not the cities. That would mean that we will not have KLAX...
They never said they were just focusing on Interstates only. They said they are avoiding cities for now
. As in not the right manpower. They are stretched thin for mapping power with Texas in the works and Wyoming. Jakub
even stated more will join when he reveal the rebuild on the xmas stream. You'll have to watch the stream. More as in new hires or once other map dlc's end is when more California will come. Its takes an experienced city builder to do California. So that is more than likely why cities are being avoided. I am sure SCS has received enough complaints on California cities and roads so it all need updating. They lack the manpower for a full 4th map team for the rebuild so they have to do what they can. California will more than likely get at least an 80% rebuild if not 100%. LAX and the ports would be big mistakes to not do with ATS being were it is now. I don't see them skipping either.
