Deep in the Nevada desert, in a town in danger of becoming just another ghost town along a trail of abandoned copper mines, may lie the future of Los Angeles' energy. Coal energy, that is. Just outside of this small community 282 miles north of Las Vegas, Los Angeles is proposing to build a coal-fired plant that would be one of several out-of-state Department of Water and Power power plants.

The California-Nevada Super Speed Train Commission, once on a fast track toward building an Anaheim-to-Las Vegas maglev route, is on the verge of power failure. Today in Anaheim, the panel will hold its last legally authorized meeting, at least for the eight California members, because Gov. Pete Wilson vetoed a bill two months ago that would have extended the commission's authority for another year. But members of the panel have not given up. Despite a recent decision by Bechtel Corp.

Gov. Pete Wilson's veto Thursday of a bill that would extend the life of the Anaheim-Las Vegas high-speed train project hit Orange County officials like a runaway locomotive. The veto could kill the $5-billion project at least until the Legislature reconvenes early next year, or until the issue is addressed during a special session that may be called to deal with the deadlock on reapportionment, officials said.

While an entourage of elected officials and business people are in Europe this week surveying potential trains for the Anaheim-Las Vegas line, financing to launch the project has begun. The Anaheim City Council recently voted to allocate $200,000 to help finance the search for a public contractor. In Nevada, the city of Las Vegas, the Convention/Visitors Authority and Clark County each donated $270,000 to the project, and the state chipped in $120,000.

County Supervisor Don R. Roth is expected today to be elected chairman of a commission that is guiding the creation of a super-speed train linking Anaheim with Las Vegas. Roth currently is vice chairman of the California-Nevada Super Speed Train Commission, which has approved an international consortium's plans to privately build and operate a 265-m.p.h. magnetic levitation train. The rail service, which could begin in 1997, will link Anaheim with Las Vegas in a 75-minute, one-way trip.

Orange County officials outlined for the first time Thursday their vision of a futuristic, $9.4-billion regional transportation system--complete with monorail, people mover and super-speed train--and asked for federal help in making the dream come true. Money, however, was not the first item on the wish list for the complex road and rail network, which would be financed largely with private funds. Initial plans call for only $600 million in federal contributions.

The Bush Administration is more interested in high-speed rail systems than the Reagan Administration was, and advocates of such systems should not become discouraged by occasional reversals, Federal Railroad Administrator Gilbert Carmichael said here Monday.

The unanimous vote by the California-Nevada Super Speed Train Commission is subject to at least a two-month negotiation of a formal franchise agreement.
