Barstow CA: The $15 billion Pelosi High Speed Transit Intrastate Train System (PHSTITS) first four car passenger train, carrying all 435 House Members and 100 Senators, left Barstow CA for Death Valley National Park CA.
The train was pulled by an electric engine powered by on board electric eels (PETA approved). This was because rabid environmentalists blocked bringing electric transmission lines from nearby solar energy farms to the railroad right of way.
Many jobs have been created! The electric engine and passenger cars were designed and built in Germany, the tracks built in Japan using their own steel, a Chinese Corporation provided the track laying labor/equipment contingent (non-union) and railroad operations are controlled by an Irish Corporation (non-union). Food and beverage service are provided by USA personnel (union). A hot dog costs a mere $10.00 before sales tax.
There is no pollution, except that produced by getting to the two current depots by private jet, limousines, buses and automobiles. The proposed $15 billion Reid High Speed Transit Interstate Train System (RHSTITS) will alleviate this problem by connecting Las Vegas NV to Death Valley National Park NV/CA.
