How about that.
Great. The world is ready for fast efficient inter-continental train travel, and here in the US we have made the train look like a dinosaur. Still disinterested? Still confused about the trains future?

Technology and politics
Train technology needs to be supported on a bi-partisan level for our nation to move forward. Politics it seems has destroyed our country. Please wake up.

While I think long distance travel is a nightmare with jets spewing their pollution at high levels. They should be looking at fixing the problem of Work Commuters, you want to talk about sucking fuel and pollution to move one person to work (in the West) and our antiquated Rail (in the east) They should be investing in systems like Skyweb Express by Taxi 2000 why aren't our powers to be investing in systems like this where you control your carbon output at a single source and move millions of people efficiently. People have many reasons for long distance travel, I feel that solution is the real vacuum of Space, Up then down at your destination. I think Virgin-Atlantic is at the forefront of this, he is playing with it now but the studies with propulsion are advancing quickly. Especially when they figure out Higgs-Boson, moving atoms through atoms without damage.

Its a technology which will overcome technical complexities such as magnetic levitation, ocean currents & pressure, sea traffic movements, massive infrastructure, complex vacuum systems, extreme emergencies, massive rescue efforts, an unknown number of engineers, cost overrun, unforeseen events. Still it may be achievable, but let us first implement Maglev tech in existing rail network by making it cheap.

It may be possible..
but I wouldn't want to be the guy taking the first ride.
