NYTimes article on high speed trains

(by Pat)

Last week's Sunday New York Times Magazine featured this article on high speed trains, which have been highly successful in Japan and Europe, but have struggled to catch on in the U.S. Much of the article is a look at plans to build a super speedy train between L.A. and San Francisco. I dearly wish that they could get an affordable high speed train between Boston and New York. Right now, Amtrak is never on time and wildly expensive. I can take a bus to NYC for $15 one way. Sounds like if California gets their train right, it might positively impact the rest of the country's plans. (Or if it fails...)
