High speed rail only makes ECONOMIC sense in high population areas like the Boston to Washington Corridor. Amtrak is a waste of public money.Jacques,
It is painfully obvious to me that the airline/oil cartels are vehemently opposed to high speed rail.
They have nothing to gain and everything to lose.
The planet is sick and suffering and air travel is a significant contributor to air pollution and the speedy decline of the health of the environment, as well as man himself.
That's my persepctive and I will be proven right in the final analysis.
The last time I road the rail in the U.S. was in 1969 when I joined the Army. It took me three train and four buses and four days to get from Alexandria, VA to Fort Polk, LA. It was late June and the train from New Orleans to Shreveport did not have air conditioning.
Yep, from June 27 to July 1 to go only a little over 1,000 air miles (as the crow flies).
