Yes! A test track is being built for Elon Musk’s 1,200-km/h train

It could take you from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes.

Plans to build Elon Musk’s proposed Hyperloop train, which could theoretically travel faster than an airplane, are getting excitingly real, with a company signing a deal to build the world’s first Hyperloop test track in central California.

The 8-km (5-mile) pilot project won’t be long enough to reach the proposed 1,200 km/h (800 mph) speeds of the Hyperloop train, but it’s a crucial first step, and is expected to begin construction at the start of next year.
