From USA Today: The two locomotives and four passenger coaches, collectively dubbed “BrightBlue,” arrived in West Palm Beach last month and were put on public display for the first time Wednesday. The set will soon be followed by four more – BrightOrange, BrightPink, BrightRed and BrightGreen – with the hopes of starting regular service by this summer.

If all goes according to plan, it will be the first privately run and operated rail service launched in the United States in over 100 years. And for passengers, it will mark the culmination of years of efforts to create a higher-speed rail option between the tourist havens of Orlando and Miami.
