Amtrak, California teaming up on high-speed rail
By KEVIN FREKING
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The two biggest players in the nation's pursuit of high-speed rail say they'll work together to search for trains that will operate at up to 220 miles per hour along both coasts of the United States.
Officials with Amtrak and the California High-Speed Rail Authority announced their venture Thursday. The officials said they envision that the two systems will purchase about 60 trains over the next decade.
The aim is for manufacturers to design trains that will work for both systems. In the process, their combined buying power should work to help get better pricing from manufacturers.
The high-speed rail efforts in California have come under increased scrutiny by members of Congress who say it has become too expensive to build and operate.

KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.
Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/10s2oB6 ) on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.
Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
