RTC kills plans for railway spur to proposed Faraday factory

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada on Thursday formally killed plans for a railway spur that would have linked an existing main railroad line to an electric car factory proposed by Faraday Future.

If the four-mile rail line was built, then Faraday would have reimbursed $3.27 million for the project’s design and construction costs to the RTC. But work never started on the rail spur, and the RTC on Thursday agreed to rescind a right-of-way granted by Clark County.

The company dropped its plans for a production plant in North Las Vegas last month, opting instead to manufacture the vehicles from an existing building in Hanford, California, between Los Angeles and Silicon Valley.
