As a rail advocate and california resident, I am just so sick of this whole HSR thing. Building a train to nowhere that duplicates tracks and a train that already exists. Wasting tons of money, taking ppls property, all to REALLY provide construction jobs.

If they were serious about this whole thing, they would have tried to do the most necessary part 1st....BFL to palmdale or to Castaic. Then we could at least have a train that runs thru..up the valley.

And with much wider use of Zoom and other visual communications, the need for speed and even getting from LA to SFO is lessened,

But rather than do what needs to be done, we are wasting money on a train to nowhere.

IMHO.
