High Speed Rail news

Some news items that have grabbed my attention:

  • Ontario, Canada – High Speed rail key to future economic development; plus it takes forever to travel to Toronto from anywhere outside of Toronto, 22 hours from Chicago is insane considering it takes half that to drive, and a hour 30 to fly.
  • NY to Washington DC – Let us hope that the California scheme now puts momentum into the rest of the US getting into the 20th Century
  • Milan to Rome – Making flying even more unattractive (assuming they are still flying that route)
  • Development in USA – US railways playing catch up
