My point is that the promoters promised a lot of state involvement, and with the current trend, that simply isn't going to happen. Putting the track closer to civilization and getting support from the city/county/state might have been slightly beneficial.
I still think you are putting too little faith in everyone that was involved with the project to think that this wasn't considered.

They have enough business sense to know that it doesn't matter what you have if no one can get to it.
