    How are they going to stop the train when one of those infamous desert tortoises stumbles on to the track, god forbid something happen to one of those precious, never ever seen, stupid turtles.

    I'll believe it when I see it. It should go Salt Lake to LA

    Thousands of people from California spend the weekends in Las Vegas; that's why the train will run between Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

    Have you seen I-15 from SLC to Vegas Fri, Sat, Sun lately? going both directions? It is NOT the once simple drive it was not very long ago. Run the train from SLC to LA...with a stop in St. George. Put that on the infrastructure list.
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    That would work. Probably more people from Utah would spend time in Las Vegas, since they wouldn't have to drive a car.

    Is this like the high speed rail between LA and San Francisco? If so, that means it will never actually happen.
