Las Vegas Railway Express had planned to shuttle partiers from an Amtrak station in Fullerton, Calif., to the heart of Sin City in a club on wheels called the X Train.
A year-old agreement with Union Pacific allowed the company to use a rail line that's currently limited to freight trains and hasn't served a passenger line since Amtrak discontinued its Desert Wind service in 1997 due to low ridership.
In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing on Tuesday, Railway Express officials disclosed that the Union Pacific deal had fallen apart, and Union Pacific would be keeping the company's $600,000 deposit.
