  •  Passenger rail can do steeper grades (0+ / 0-)

    so they don't have to do the loop in Tehachapi. The route then goes down through Palmdale and then Soledad Canyon back to Santa Clarita and then the San Fernando Valley.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!

    •  Depending on the equipment, it certainly can. (0+ / 0-)

      Especially so called "Light Rail".  But I can't find any "High Speed Rail" routes around the world with steep grades or tight curves.  Again...I'll rejoice if this somehow manages to be the first.
