This will be a millstone around the necks of California taxpayers. I've been on Spain's HSR lines, and yes, they are nice, but also highly subsidized by sky-high fuel taxes. They also overcame the NIMBY crowds that California didn't, and their HSR lines go into central Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla, etc. California HSR is starting in the middle of nowhere almost 75 miles from 'Frisco, and it is going to end in the desert near Barstow, about 75 miles from LA. Start = end = nowhere, and the connectors to SF and LA will never get built means California HSR = boondoggle.
