High-speed trains are not for taking cars off the road. They’re efficient alternatives to short-hop air travel. Houston to Dallas, as an example.

HOWEVER, unlike airlines IN MOST CASES, these trains are all “showpiece” government projects that never ever break even.

I disagree, much of the world leads us in high speed train technology,but even slow trains take a lot of commuters off the roads here in the NYC DC corridor. I agree they need to be made more profitable, but I’d pay to save lot of hours on a commute.
They just opened a NYC to Atlantic City express run, and it’s doing well.
