Welcome, everyone. Well, the first Pacific Coast Line train from Tijuana just pulled in here at Union Station in Los Angeles, and that can mean only one thing. The second phase of the GoobNet Highly Effective Accelerated Railway Transit for Accessing National Destinations with a Special Opportunity to Unify Locations train network is active and running!
As we did at the Phase 1 opening, let’s take a moment to thank all the people who made this possible. There have been innumerable construction workers whose tireless effort made all this possible. Remember, it’s not just the tracks that they laid down. There are also the stations that had to be rebuilt, expanded, or upgraded. There are also a number of new people on the team, to conduct the trains, sell the tickets, handle your baggage, and keep you safe. Say hello to them as you ride today.
So what have we added to the network this time? Well, we just had a train arrive from Tijuana, which makes our first connection to Mexico. We also have connections to our neighbours from the north, as major Canadian cities like Vancouver, Toronto, and Montréal are now accessible on our network.
Furthermore, the completion of Line 55 and the extension of Line 35 mean that our northeast and southeast regions have finally been joined together. Now you can travel from Dallas to Tulsa in about three and a half hours, from Kansas City to Memphis in just under five hours, and from Detroit to Pittsburgh in about four hours.
Not only that, our overall coverage has grown considerably. You can now access the home cities of seventeen of the nineteen Major League Soccer clubs. This will surely mean many more away supporters, and just when you thought Portland-Vancouver matches couldn’t get any wilder. As for the NFL, 27 of the 32 teams’ home cities are on our network. Only Charlotte, Denver, Green Bay, Minneapolis, and Tampa are left out for now, but most of them will be joining in future phases.
And speaking of the future, I’m sure you are all thrilled that work on the connection segments of Lines 10 and 80 has already begun. When those are complete, our eastern and western regions will be joined into one fantastic high speed rail network that covers the USA from coast to coast.
But that’s all still ahead of us. For now, what say we all board the Western Rocky Express for Las Vegas?
