California High Speed Rail
In this photo taken Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013, a freight train travels south alongside Highway 99 near Livingston, Calif. Construction of the nation's first high-speed rail system is slated to begin in Fresno promising to create construction jobs and link the Central Valley to the rest of California. Many Californians have soured on the $68 billion plan in the five years since voters approved $10 billion in bonds for it.(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
