“America is just too big for trains.”
HSR makes sense for regional hops of less than 400 to maybe 600 miles or along an existing (and successful) corridor like Washington DC to Boston. But for long hauls you’re right that it just can’t compete with aircraft.
Unless, of course, Obozo has his way and institutes carbon taxes that make air travel cost prohibitive for everyone but the limousine liberals.
