That's about it though.
Overall is it cost effective? Absolutely not.
So they won't have security and checks on a train? Any ol terrorist can come and blow it up.
Drive to KCI? That's if you live far from KCI. What about if you live far from the train station?
I don't see how this will really be anything other than a slow version of an airplane.
