Union Pacific voices major objections to bullet-train plans – latimes.com.

California’s bullet train project, already under attack from a giant farming operation in the state, has attracted another powerful critic — Union Pacific, the nation’s largest railroad.

Union Pacific says the California High Speed Rail Authority’s Central Valley route raises serious safety issues, disregards the company’s property rights and would disrupt its freight operations.

The big railroad that cried wolf.

It may very well be that UP has a sustainable argument, but this is also the same outfit that wants $750,000,000.00 from Amtrak to operate the Sunset on a daily basis New Orleans to Los Angeles. Just sayin’.
