Arizona considers solar powered bullet train

Two of America’s deep south cities could one day be connected by a 220 mph solar powered bullet train.
Arizona-based Solar Bullet LLC is seeking investment for the Tuscan to Phoenix rail link.
The 116 mile journey between the two cities will take just 30 minutes on the bullet train.
Technology development for a high speed solar powered train is still in its early stages, although engineers believe bullet trains could be running on solar power by 2018.
With the Tuscan-Phoenix link expected to cost around $27 billion, Solar Bullet is currently pitching the idea to local cities and potential investors.
If it proves successful, the high speed line would eventually extend north to the Grand Canyon and south to Nogales.
