There is some news which should bring guarded optimism for those of us backing sensible ground transportation. It is hard to imagine the enormous and positive economic impact building and operating such a marvelous thing would bring to California. It would be America’s first true High Speed Rail system.

    I am keeping my fingers crossed. The sooner these projects begin, the better. Wish it was arkansas voting to have HSR in a Memphis, seary, LR corridor.
