L.A– An American company that has labored for a years to build a high-speed train in between Southern California and Las Vegas is hoping assistance from China will get the job on track.

XpressWest stated in a composed statement Thursday it has actually partnered with a newly formed company called China Railway International.

XpressWest states it received $100 million in preliminary capital and “execution” will certainly start within 100 days.

What that indicates is unclear. The statement was short on information, and the individual who addressed the phone at XpressWest’s offices could not elaborate.

The project has approval to go from Las Vegas to the desert city of Victorville, about a 100-mile drive from Los Angeles. It still requires further government approval to connect with Southern California’s population centers.
