Bay Area High-Speed Rail Track Alignment Details Delayed Again

The planners responsible for the Bay Area section of the high-speed rail line have again delayed the release of a report detailing whether the bullet train could rocket along the Caltrain route underground or on raised tracks...In a Sept. 30 report, planners said the track alignments they would study to accommodate Caltrain and a high-speed rail included underground tunnels and trenches, street level and raised structures. Other more unorthodox ideas included stacking tracks two-by-two, running bullet trains belowground with Caltrain above, or shortening high-speed rail from Los Angeles to San Jose instead of San Francisco.
