Looks like a fun car: The Cool Down
High-speed rail company unveils renderings of luxurious cabin options: 'A first-class experience'

Image

High-speed rail company Brightline already operates one line in Florida and recently broke ground on its second, Brightline West, which will run from Southern California to Las Vegas. Now, the company has released renderings of what the interiors will look like for passengers on Brightline West. The images were published by Railway-News.

In addition to the renderings, Brightline revealed that the two class options for passengers will be known as Smart and Premium.

"Premium promises to offer a first-class experience with added amenities, catering to all needs," Railway-News wrote.

But Smart doesn't sound so bad, either, as Brightline said that it would offer equivalent legroom to a first-class airline seat. Smart guests will also be able to purchase various food and beverage options.

HOly cow that train car is wider than a 747 body. Brunel would love this!!! He was the guy that made Britain's Great Western at something like 7' gauge for the first 20 years.

Maybe they've chosen 7' gauge and haven't told anybody? Looks like in any case they're going to have to charge about 4x the Smart-class fare for that seating.

Afterthought edit: Whatever happened to "underpromise and overdeliver"? Is there some overpromising here?

If they really want to get the Vegas feel, they need to put a craps table or two on the train.
