X Rail Eyeing 2019 Start to Vegas Service

The proposed X Train between Las Vegas and Southern California could start operations in mid 2019.

X Rail Entertainment, a unit of United Rail, said the train will make the trip in 4.5 hours over tracks of Union Pacific and BNSF.

It will operate one round trip per week, departing for Las Vegas on Fridays and returning on Sundays.

X Rail said it has acquired the equipment needed for the service and the necessary necessary agreements are in place.

It also said the trip time could be cut to 3.5 hours after infrastructure improvements are completed along the route allowing for higher-speed service.

Eventually, the company said it plans to open  a 500-room hotel above its Las Vegas station.
