The Las Vegas X-Train: Casino on Wheels
Las Vegas is never short of new ideas and innovations to get people to its casinos. The new X-Train project is coming to the city.
The X-Train project is a hybrid of travel and luxury. It will take people between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The standard trip takes around five hours. A ticket for X Train costs $500. There will be competition from a new Virgin train line. This will start in 2023. .. Virgin Trains high-speed link will carry passengers from Victorville, California, to Las Las. Vegas Xpress is running an entertainment venue as opposed to a regular mode of transport.
The company has been in talks with the Union Pacific Railroad, but no agreement has yet been made to open a private passenger rail service. The line had originally been scheduled to run into Santa Fe Station in San Bernardino, California, from here commuters had access to other California cities. It will now travel to Union Station. Other ideas were to create a purpose-built station at the Las Vegas Plaza, which was later cancelled.
The company is 90% ready and the second phase is in implementation. Improvements will be made to the rail line near Barstow, California. High-speed section will reduce commuting time to 4 hours.
