IndustryWeek : High-Speed Rail: Mixed Signals.

In February 2010, Siemens announced that it bought 20 acres of land in Sacramento, Calif., to meet future demand for high-speed trains in the United States.

 

The land, which sits adjacent to the company’s 34-acre light-rail manufacturing site in Sacramento, has yet to be developed. But if Congress ever reaches consensus in support of high-speed rail, the company says it will build a factory on the new site, producing Siemens’ 220-mile-per-hour Velaro trains.
