A group of American and Chinese companies are set to work together to create a high-speed rail to link Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The two cities are only an hour apart by air, but the numerous advantages of rail travel have led to this initiative, which sees American company XpressWest team up with China Railway International USA in a project that could see construction begin in just over a year.

This high-speed rail link will connect Southern Nevada and Southern California, and will include stations in Las Vegas, Victorville, California and Palmdale, California in addition to service throughout Los Angeles.

This new and highly ambitious high-speed rail project is hoped to promote new economic growth and tourist development across the region, which is what you expect from an expensive transportation project.
