Superfast train by 2018? Seems we're not all in agreement— following a Daily Cal story forecasting 2018 as a possible finish date, the LA Times' Bottleneck Blog called shenanigans, saying 1) show me the money, and 2) what do you have to smoke to see 400 miles of high-speed rail in 10 years? Not so fast, says California HSR Blog: there is money (maybe), and most of the track will be laid in non-urban areas, so it should be faster in coming. So there. But, uh, who else thinks 2018's so far away it could hardly be called too optimistic? [California HSR Blog]
