High-Speed Rail to The Happiest Place on Earth

LA's Metro board is getting on board with high-speed rail, announcing Thursday that a Los Angeles-to-Anaheim (home of Disneyland) train could be a reality in less than 10 years.

'The segment within the 800-mile system could begin construction as early as 2012, finishing six years later, and is considered to be the most 'construction ready.' 'Union Station will become transformed into a world-class, 21st Century intermodal transit hub that will serve the County of Los Angeles in ways that are very exciting to imagine,' said Metro CEO Art Leahy."
