Sorta what mike said
HSR is a very expensive proposition, and is very hard to fund. Not sure we'll see one in this country anytime soon. Often, IMHO, the mission (Purpose and Need in the lingo) isn't as well defined as it should be, and they bog down, largely due to huge cost for unknown benefit. It is very hard to fund rail transit in general. Both Dallas and Houston's light rail programs owe their existence, in part, to the very program that trump is cutting. __________________ "I like to establish the parameters of my own thoughts and don't think I need a director."
