bullet_train California voters may be about to launch the most ambitious rail project undertaken by any state — a nearly 800-mile system of bullet trains that can top 200 mph. Steve Lawrence of the AP reports in the Huffington Post.

On Nov. 4, California voters will decide whether to authorize the sale of $9.9 billion in state bonds to help pay for a high-speed rail line linking Anaheim, Los Angeles, Fresno and San Francisco. Planners say it would be the first leg of a system that would complement air travel and eventually include stations in Sacramento, San Diego and Oakland.
