High-Speed Rail Route to L.A. Coming into View, With Stop in Palmdale

As mentioned in Los Angeles Magazine, October 24, 2016, construction of the state’s bullet train is in full swing around Fresno and the Central Valley. The California High-Speed Rail Authority will likely next build out the northern stretch, to Silicon Valley and San Francisco, but its narrowing in on how to get to Los Angeles and what that route will look like. The board recently announced a redesign to the future stations, including the stop that will be built at Los Angeles Union Station. A video on the Union Station Master Plan shows the platform going in on the east end of the station. Preliminary CHSRA plans envision bullet trains entering L.A. via surface tracks, possibly the same tracks that the Metrolink commuter rail system uses.
