Trains 3 and 4, the Southwest Chief, run on a former Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe line, which is ATS equipped most of the way from Barstow, CA to Chicago, IL. The Chief can go to 110MPH and save 3 hours BAR-CHI (resulting in the arrival in CHI being 1:15P instead of the current 4:15P, and its LAX arrival being 5:40A instead of the present 8:40A. Metrolink wants to increase LAX-SAN from 79/90 MPH to 110MPH SAN-LAX. San Bernardino County was talking about speeding up Barstow to Needles to 90MPH with dual control and getting the existing ATS upgraded to 110MPH..
