RE: Amtrak's high-speed rail vision for 2040: New York to Washington in 96 minutes
This will never happen....for one thing, they will be bankrupt by then anyway, so why even bother....and cost? It's going to cost one Northern Virginia county over 4 billion dollars to build an above-ground metro rail 8 miles to Dulles Airport!...and that's above the original 3.6 billion that they *THOUGHT* it would cost...and that was only a few months ago! Look...we have trillions of dollars to pump into the middle east in the form of wars, but we certainly can do that *AND* build a world-class mass transit rail system!
