I disagree to some extent that nobody will build 40-50 miles of track for one customer. I think if the money is right the railroad absolutely would build that much track for a customer.
The key is that that one customer would need to produce the revenue required to make the line profitable. This line wouldn't do that, but if a huge oil deposit was found that would produce enough revenue cars per day to justify building the line a railroad would do it.
Never say never.
