LAS VEGAS (AP) — The long trip from Southern California to Las Vegas is about to get bigger, better and boozier.
A Nevada company is one step closer to putting a party train on the tracks after signing a conditional agreement with Union Pacific Railroad last week.
The pact allows the Las Vegas Railway Express to use tracks between Daggett, Calif., in San Bernardino County, and Sin City, as long as the company meets certain conditions.
The proposed “X Train” would feature an ultra lounge, TVs for watching sports, and private cars suitable for bachelor parties. A $99 ticket each way would include food and drinks and get passengers from Fullerton, Calif., to downtown Las Vegas in about five hours.
Company officials hope to get the X Train running by late 2013.
