New Rail Tracks in the U.S.

From: "Fabian Haunerland" FabianHaunerland@gmx.de

I am a German University Student in Transportation Economics at Dresden University of Technology, and I would like to ask a question which none of my German lecturers could answer:

Are there any railroads in the U.S. built within the last 10 years?

I don't refer to modernization or reconstruction of existing or formerly existing routes, but to newly constructed railroad connections in addition to the last century's network. My question includes any new rail track except for local and regional passenger/commuter transportation systems. ...

The 20 mile Alameda Corridor in Los Angeles serving the port might qualify. It superseded earlier routes of several railroads to the port, but I believe it in its self was new construction and did not simply rehabilitate and upgrade an existing route, although it did apparently generally follow an earlier Southern Pacific alignment.
