The trains can hit speeds of 79 mph, making the run to the skyport in some 35 minutes, said RTD spokesman Kevin Flynn. In a four-car configuration, some 900 passengers can make the ride in record time, even with several stops along the way. Most like the on-board bike racks, the springs in handicapped seating, and the extra racks for baggage. While the trains will begin operation in 2016, on the Gold and Northwest lines along with DIA, in 2018 the final leg to the northern suburbs will begin running as well. If you want a chance to check out the new cars, head over to Union Station between the hours of 11 a.m.
