re: #69 OldLineTexan

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.

The biggest waste I’ve seen lately in that area is the stupid monorail they built in Vegas. Nobody rides it excet tourists using 2 for 1 coupons.

They could have at least built it so it started at the airport. If it did that, I’d take it every time I go there, because it stops right at the hotel where I usually stay.
