    High speed fail is exactly that in the US. It makes no sense for a really large nation unless you have very dense population areas. It might work in very limited areas on the East Coast, but that's about it. Anywhere else it's pretty much a massive, expensive, loser.
    Los Angeles to San Francisco is only hundreds of miles, the problems building it are mostly political and legal not technical. The distance is less than 400 miles, the answer is too many lawyers.

    No, the biggest drawback is getting right-of-way land to build it. That's going run close to a trillion on its own. That's why airports and aircraft are smarter. The cost of construction of high speed fail is astronomical. It will never be recouped. In Europe, the rail right-of-way mostly already existed so that problem wasn't insurmountable.



    They did complete some bridges to nowhere for it...

    Well I did say political and legal rather than technical. HS1 had many of the same problems, going through some of the most crowded built-up areas in Europe. That why much of it from St. Pancras to the English Channel goes through tunnel.

    There is a small town here in PA. named Blue Ball. It's right next to Intercourse and Paradise (no bullshit, look it up!).






    And then there's

    Common sense is not a gift, it's a punishment because you have to deal with everyone who doesn't have it.

    I was all about the LGBTQ community until I found out it did not mean, "Let's Get Biden To Quit"
    If my posts offend you:
    1. I'm sorry.
    2. It won't happen again.
    3. 1 & 2 are both lies.
    4. You're a pussy.
