And just like that ... Suddenly America has a really serious private passenger rail operator again ... See what happened? If you blinked you missed it. They would have been laughed right out of the penny slots in Reno only 10 years ago if they had said "we will operate a high speed passenger rail service from California to the new NFL stadium in Las Vegas".

I'm really interested to see how they interact with the Texas Central project. One of the VTUSA people made some statements that strongly implied they would've jumped all over the DAL-HOU corridor if someone else hadn't nabbed it first.
