Las Vegas Railway Express, Inc. (OTCQB: XTRN) -- The X Train Announces Its Logistics Plan to Open LA to Vegas on the Western Alignment

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2014) - The Las Vegas Railway Express, Inc. (OTCQB: XTRN), known as the Vegas X Train, with planned luxury train travel service between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, announced today it has begun the engineering of the route to Las Vegas via conventional rail on what it calls the Western Alignment. The original plan by the X Train was to traverse the Cajon Pass to Barstow and then north to Las Vegas. As capacity on that route became restricted, X Train reached out to UNLV's Rail Engineering program headed by Dr. Harry Teng to plan the logistics of an alternative route to Las Vegas. The UNLV plan is consistent with the RTC's plan of 2007 which shows access to Las Vegas via rail from the west rather than via the heavily trafficked Cajon Pass.

"We have spent the last year re-tooling our efforts to run the X Train service between Los Angeles and Las Vegas and based on the findings of UNLV's Rail Engineering Group, have concluded that the route from LA to Mojave to Barstow to Las Vegas would avoid the rail traffic of the Cajon Pass," stated Michael Barron, CEO of the X Train. "We have reached out to local and statewide support for this project and have found a number of our representatives who are energized about assisting in opening this third corridor of travel to Las Vegas," Barron said.

"We are right on track with our planned route between LA to Vegas and now we are going to incorporate the Club X class service to existing passenger trains. This will make train travel much more enjoyable again."
