How does Brightline President Michael Reininger hope to win such a large wager? By focusing on the tiniest details.

During a tour of Brightline’s under-construction locomotives and passenger cars Tuesday at a factory in Sacramento, Reininger pointed to a variety of little things that he hopes will attract passengers.

Each seat is equipped with several power plugs. To eliminate the yuck factor that air travelers know all too well, Brightline workers will clean bathrooms during the trip. A suspension system adapted from European trains will ensure a smooth ride.

Windows will be large to offer everyone views, and aisles will be nearly twice as wide as airplane aisles. When passengers buy their tickets, they will be able to book rides to and from the train stations.
