A cornerstone-laying ceremony for Jerusalem's fast-speed train station was held Wednesday near the city's International Convention Center. The express train service, which will cut travel time between the two cities to a mere 28 minutes and is expected to service more than 6 million passengers a year, will begin operating in 2011. Among the participants at the event included Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz, Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski and the CEO of Israel Railways Ofer Linczewski.
