    BruceMcF demonstrates that there is no Federally Designated corridor between those two points.  Please read that diary.

    •  Sorry. Not relevant. (0+ / 0-)

      The significance of designation as a federal high speed rail corridor appears limited to whether federal funds become available under certain programs for purposes of improving grade crossings in areas crossed by higher speed passenger trains. In many of the corridors already designated, there are no high speed passenger trains, or any other kind of passenger train.

      The stimulus act provides the $8 billion for both "high speed rail corridors" and "intercity passenger rail service". Look here at page 237. I find nothing in the law to prevent application of the funds to the CA-NV project.
