I've used the TGV.... I prefer to drive my OWN car on my OWN time frame.... I don't like being on trips with other random people.. Also, what happens to the auto industry that were too big too fail, if high speed rail were to enter the scene....

No money to fund but it would create jobs. I was hoping California would consider it (there were talks but not sure where it went). My nephew is in the film industry and would benefit greatly from traveling to L.A. from S.F.
I'd use it to visit my son in college or have him come home for a short weekend visit.

53B to GE for this project is what I understand. Who gets to be the lucky ones losing their land to eminent domain in the construction process?
The motors are American made in Schenectady, that's the only good thing I see here.
