More Insistence that Vegas/Victorville Train is Happening
The San Bernardino Sun reports on a teleconference from last week where the backers of the Desert Xpress train again insisted they will break ground on the Victorville to Vegas train next year since their environmental and financial plans are just about done. Xpress president Tom Stone said he expected to make an announcement in about a month regarding a mystery investor of the $5 billion project--the project is supposed to be built exclusively with private funds, and possibly a federal loan. We previously heard this thing was supposed to break ground in March.
