L.A. To Pomona And Beyond, Like San Diego

And nothing about that headline has to do with my blog. Oh, wait, yes it does.

But this time I am talking about something different. I'm talking about High-Speed trains coming this way. A 220 mile per hour train is what I mean. It currently takes about 3 hours on an Amtrak train from L.A. to San Diego (it is also not direct, it stops at other places on its way). With this new train, we're talking around an hour and 18 minutes to the same destinaton and some stops! Not bad...

"Rail planners have identified three potential paths for the bullet trains between Los Angeles and Pomona: along the existing Union Pacific tracks through Commerce, Pico Rivera and Industry, or either parallel to or in the center of the San Bernardino (10) or Pomona (60) freeways.

California legislators have passed a law that the first leg of the $40 billion, 800-mile statewide system will be a route from Los Angeles down to Anaheim."
