California-to-Vegas High-Speed Rail in Planning Stages

DesertXpress Enterprises LLC, a company developing a plan for a high-speed train to link Las Vegas and Victorville, CA, is looking for feedback from residents about the privately funded proposal, reports the Mercury News.

The company is hosting public hearings in Las Vegas on Tuesday; Barstow, CA, on Wednesday; and Victorville on Thursday.

The company says that the construction, which will take place along Interstate 15, could take four years. The train will reach speeds of up to 150 mph, making the trip between Las Vegas and Victorville less than 90 minutes.
