In 2019, Virgin Trains USA hopes to launch routes connecting Tampa and Orlando, and then focus on an ambitious project to link Los Las and Angeles Vegas via exactly the same high-speed trains.

“Tens of an incredible number of Americans travel on the railways each day, and we’ve tried for over ten years to find a chance to supply them with that same excellent service experience,” said Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin, in a statement to the press.
