Desert Express sings deal that could link L.A. and Las Vegas

The Desert Express project has for years touted a plan to bring travelers to Las Vegas via high speed rail. Developers envisioned L.A. tourists driving 90 minutes to Victorville, CA, parking and hopping the train for the rest of the journey and vice versa. The problem, many critics thought, was that travelers wouldn't want to ditch their cars if Las Vegas was so close. But now Desert Express executives have agreed on a deal to build link that would connect the Desert Express to California's high speed rail project that is currently under development. We talk with an executive from Desert Express about the project and their plans to bring high speed rail to Las Vegas.
