No actually it is cheaper, the tunnel can be smaller and it is cheaper per energy consumption per mile.

Trains with a speed 600 km. Mexicans in the U.S., Asians, all people. Crisis in the economy. Storm in Australia. Snow in Chicago. Names, hate, crap, as long as this hatred. How long will it drive like that. U.S. № 1, because such things with no problems, and will have. Come success. Skip to freedom. In Egypt comes, it can already be seen ...

Well, at almost 400 mph, if there were ever some kind of catastrophic accident, you know that EVERYBODY on that train would die.

Speaking of fast terrestrial vehicles, remember the British team that smashed the land speed record (and the sound barrier) out in Nevada's Black Rock Desert? That was the Thrust SSC driven by RAF pilot Andy Green. His record run of 760 mph has stood for 13 years.

Well the same engineering and academic consortium that built Thrust SSC, are building a new vehicle called Bloodhound SSC. It's a hybrid: 1 jet engine & 1 rocket engine. Their goal? 1000 mph. Yikes!
