Part 5 – Posted 11/24/17 – HARD TRUTHS About High Speed Trains – The Early Politics, Deceit And Lack Of Transparency
In August 2014, months before the SAFE Coalition was created, residents throughout the area received a postcard in the mail indicating that an area through the Angeles National Forest was going to be studied for possible high speed train routes.

Part 4 – Posted 11/24/17-THE HARD TRUTHS About High Speed Trains – There Are Zero Benefits, Only Psychological, Social, Economic And Physical Damage Threatened By The Train
HAPPY THANKSGIVING – My Thanksgiving Gift to You!
In the last post, we walked through the decision making process for the high speed train project, explaining there is a high speed train “Authority” (appointed by the Governor and other electeds) and the role politics and environmental law play in the larger scheme of things. Note the SAFE Coalition refers to the project as the high speed “train” project and not the “rail” project. That’s to correct […]
The Hard Truth about High Speed Trains in the NE San Fernando Valley: How Will Go/No Go Decisions Be Made About the High Speed “Train” Threat in the NE San Fernando Valley?

PART 1 – POSTED 11/11/17 – “The Hard Truths” About High Speed Trains in the NE San Fernando Valley – The Basics
I’m choosing to brand this series “THE HARD TRUTHS” about high speed trains. Please, please, please encourage your friends and family to read every “Part” of this series over the next few weeks. That’s because the high speed train Authority and some of our elected officials have not been transparent or truthful to you. As we observed from victims of the high speed train project in Central California who have already lost their homes to eminent domain, we’ll […]
