If you’ve ever cruised Japan or Europe and jumped on a high speed train to get you from one city to another, you know how cool they are. Now we may get one for travel between LA and San Francisco. If you want to give input into the planning stages, check out the meeting taking place tonight at the Friendship Auditorium in Griffith Park. This is a ‘pre-scoping’ meeting being held by representatives of California’s High Speed Rail Authority and councilmember Tom Labonge, who is a big supporter of the project. They want your input. It will travel at speeds of 220 mph and once it’s in place will be a great alternative to driving the seven hour slog up and down the state. It starts at 6:30 pm. The location is the Friendship Auditorium, 3201 Riverside Drive, Los Angeles, 90027 in Griffith Park. You can park adjacent to the building.
