"She commended the California High-Speed Rail Authority for listening to the concerns of Peninsula cities and residents along the right-of-way, and coming up with an agreement that would free up high-speed rail funds to electrify Caltrain, which will ultimately be able to operate on a track system that blends with high-speed rail."

"Blends" HSR? Without grade separation there is no HSR, just another fancy electric train. Folks, can't you see we're being screwed by the HSR authority. IF it's ever built, if they don't build monolithic grade separations (they've already said they won't put them underground) it won't be able to run any faster than Caltrain. So what's the point? Be prepared for monolithic grade separations because the camel just got his nose under the tent.
