I'd say San Bernardino gets completely gentrified before Baker even sees a new neighborhood go in.
Agree totally. San Bernardino still has "good bones" as far as housing goes. Baker has almost none.

Nope, not a joke... After a successful express railway from LA to Vegas installed with several stops in all the towns on 15 freeway, more developers will be interested in building more new homes there, including Baker, CA. But, that's a long way off, of course.

When built-out about 50-100 years later, Los Angeles and Las Vegas metropolitan area staying close to 15 freeway will be the largest in the whole United States. There are no plans to build a Los Angeles to Phoenix railway in a lifetime. Invest in a Las Vegas home before Phoenix.

If the "high speed" train has to stop in Baker, that means it will have to decelerate, which will then mean it isn't exactly "high speed" right?

And what reason would there be for stopping in Baker? A selfie next to the giant thermometer?

For what it's worth, my money wouldn't be on Apple Valley, Victorville or Hesperia.

Look further west towards I-5 where the Irvine-style "Tejon Ranch" and "Centennial" projects are being planned in the western Antelope Valley...

The Tapestry project looms like an evil spirit over southern Hesperia. One can only imagine what that's going to do to morning and evening drive on an already overburdened and inadequate system of roads and freeways. Freeway I mean.

Virgin trains just closed escrow on 200+ acres in Apple Valley and Nevada also approved 100+ acres for a train station. If this happens, I definitely see the high desert growing quite a bit. Hopefully in a good way. It would be my hope if and when they build out the longest stretch (Apple Valley - Nevada) local government will see the appeal this train will be to people in the LA, SGV, OC, etc and build connecting lines from all over Socal to AV. My bet is on this project finishing before the CA bullet train gets anywhere close to being completed.
