New California to Las Vegas Railway

Posted: Nov. 27th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

A luxury train service is set to begin operating between southern California and Las Vegas by December 2013, bringing a much valued pipeline for luxury travelers from the San Diego and Las Angeles international airports into the heart of Sin City. Dubbed the “X Train,” the new line will run on Union Pacific tracks between Daggett California and Las Vegas, a much shorter jump for distant travelers look for luxury than previously.

A company planning luxury train service between Southern California and Las Vegas has signed a key agreement with the Union Pacific Railroad that could lead to the start of passenger service by the end of next year.

Las Vegas Railway Express signed the deal last week enabling the company to operate its "X Train" on Union Pacific tracks between Daggett, Calif., and Las Vegas. That means that X Train excursions between Fullerton, Calif., and the company's rail station at the Plaza Hotel in downtown Las Vegas could begin in December 2013.
