First there was the DesertXpress--the proposed high-speed rail line between Las Vegas and the SoCal hub of all things connected and happening, Victorville. Then the X-Train emerged on the scene, offering future riders a "party" experience to Sin City, including on-board drinks and gaming.Then a company pitching their Z-Train ("Once Z-Train starts, Z-Excitement Never Stops") claims that not only does their "private jet [style] experience" offer riders something more posh than the beer basics of the X-Train, but also that they had the party train to Vegas idea first, according to cbs2.

Nevermind that Amtrak bailed on their own attempt to market a festive train ride from L.A.'s Union Station to Las Vegas. Now Union Pacific says there isn't a party that's planned for their tracks. At all.
