Anybody crazy enough to travel 130 miles an hour on anything in the tunnel illustrated in that picture should have their head examined. A railway pushcart traveling at a couple of miles an hour? Maybe, but I'd even be fearful using a contraption like that in Musk's 'tunnel'.
And as always with any Elon Musk venture... 'Many questions remain'
Next stop... Mars? LOL

Coincidence theorists will be pleased...
The rumors that these tunnels already exist have been floated forever.

I can’t wait to ride in a subway at 130 MPH in an earthquake zone...

Nice straight tracks in that tube - extremely high speed trains will be for the adventurous only - plus the mandatory life insurance policies.

The technology is the same as that used for the Chunnel. This is nothing new. I really don’t get the fuss.
They’ve done the same thing for sewage 800’ below Chicago.

The Mexican Cartels approve of this pioneering effort... tho they have been building tunnels for years. The sky is the limit as new technologies are developed.

Musk is the biggest CON man to ever push Bullshit through the ears of the populace. He is using our money to hoodwink the stupid government. Easily done in Kalifornia, sad to see but not surprising. He should be on trial for fraud.

Where’s the otherwise obligatory graffiti?
I can actually SEE that the rail is crooked on the “straightaway”. For the record, I wouldn’t go near one of those damn things. The whole idea is STUPID.
