“In the SF Bay area there is NO WHERE to build a corridor for high speed anything.”
Sure there is. It can be built along the right of way that Cal Train uses, it can be built elevated on top of that right of way, and it can be built under that right of way just the same as BART is built under a portion of that right of way. It could also be tunneled across the Bay to the new terminal near AT&T Park.
So long as it isn’t done with tax money I personally don’t care where they build it. Or not. It’s California - let them stew in traffic.
Not practical. If built, it won't be high speed, not along the CalTrain right of way. And it will be expensive. Lots of lawsuits, hearings, delays happening now with the changes due to electrification of CalTrain trains. Which was forced by liberal idiots (diesel was fine, generating electricity for the existing train engines). High speed rail is impossible on that corridor, just can't happen.
And you can’t run that at 200 mph. Moreover all the efforts of the current ‘bullet’ train in California have been environmentally rebuffed in the Bay Area. My statement stands
