  1. I seem to remember a similar story with the acela from Boston to NYC to DC around the early aughts, and they couldn’t achieve the higher speeds they advertised for a whole bunch of reasons…stations and tracks couldn’t handle the higher speeds iirc.

    It’d be nice but I’m not holding my breath.

  2. I’ve never understood the drive to have passenger trains run long distance at such high speeds. The only thing trains excel at is efficiency, but they lose that when they travel fast, making them not any better than airplanes while also requiring far more infrastructure.

    A regular-speed train is really efficient, though.

  3. I am making 💵150 every hour by working on the web at home. A month ago I have gotten $19723 from this activity. This activity is exceptionally astounding and its normal income for me is superior to anything my past office work. This activity is for all and everyone can without much of a stretch join this correct now by utilize this link.
    🙂 AND GOOD LUCK.:)
