High speed rail is not an option at this time.
How about regular speed all weather railroads. Where the
trains actually run without a month or more of interruption.

High Speed Not:
Do your research high speed rail tracks would be 'monitored' and made to overcome natural disasters like flooding.
In many parts of the US where high speed rail tracks exists for inter-modal high speed freight lines, tracks are built with monitoring devices, exclusive reinforced right of ways, and centralized positive command control to ensure the freight reaches its destinations. Tomorrow's rail technology-today; it works! The same technologies can be applied to high speed passenger rail.
The future is here for high speed rail; it's time to put it to use.
p.s.; When the Hoover[Boulder] Dam was first proposed in the Depression-era 1930's, some naysayers said it was a boondoggle and disaster in waiting. Surprise! Engineers now agree the Hoover Dam will last for centuries. The dam was built on/ahead of schedule and under budget! To replace the Hoover Dam, today, would cost hundreds of $billions of dollars.
The same holds true for high speed passenger rail etc. today. Build it now with good old fashion American sweat equity/ingenuity and it will last for centuries.
