X-Train Meets Snarl But Development Continues in Las Vegas

A minor snarl brought major changes to the X-Train's construction plans, though the California-to-Las-Vegas railway will still come into service next year. The snarl arose when it was realized that the planned location of it's major Las Vegas stop, the Plaza in downtown Las Vegas, was too small to facilitate the system's needs.

The train that will bring partiers from Southern California to Las Vegas next year will deliver passengers to a new train station that will be built in North Las Vegas.
