China Signs Onto California High-Speed Rail

New, 8 comments

Did we miss this? Though chatter had it that China was interested in participating in California's high-speed rail buildout, the NYT reports that "the Chinese government has signed cooperation agreements with the State of California and General Electric to help build such lines." For those of us who can't help but think "Chinese drywall" and "melamine-flavored pet food," the article quotes a guy who'll have no problem being the first guy with a bullet train ticket: "These guys are engineering driven — they know how to build fast, build cheaply and do a good job."
