LAS VEGAS (AP) Developers of a plan for a high-speed train linking Las Vegas and Victorville, Calif., along Interstate 15 want to hear from residents about the privately funded proposal.

Fresh from federal approval of an environmental impact statement, DesertXpress Enterprises LLC hosted a public hearing on April 28 at the Hampton Inn on Dean Martin Drive near Tropicana Avenue.

Similar meetings were set for April 29 in Barstow, Calif., and April 30 in Victorville.

Company officials say construction should begin early next year and take four years.

Proponents say that at speeds of up to 150 mph, the 180-mile trip between Las Vegas and Victorville would take less than 90 minutes. They say the train could carry millions of passengers a year by 2015.
