California Bullet Train Gets Its Own Riding the Rails Folk Song

New, 16 comments

CALIFORNIA: It's neo-hoboism: the trains are nicer but the music's not as good. Some crafty Woody Guthrie fan has cooked up this song all about the benefits of the California high-speed rail project (two hours, forty minutes from SF to LA; less pollution). The train will maybe possibly one day stretch from San Francisco/Sacramento down to San Diego and recently took a step forward when the state legislature signed off on bond funding that will also open it up for federal funds.
