Curbed LA, via the Las Vegas Sun, is reporting that the DesertXpress train planned between Las Vegas and Victorville will begin construction this year. This route, if extended from Victorville, would ideally connect with California's High Speed Rail project in Palmdale. Another project also in the works would bring a high speed MagLev train from Vegas to Anaheim.
