As usual, from Mouse, and his various alter egos, always int4eresting ponts using an interestkng associative state to explain the real meaning of all of this vast conspiracy, so well.
It sure seems like a lot of folks are takkng the trains to San Diego today, where I'm looking at a traffic map, which show about a five hour trip on I-5, right now,$5.00 gas at the freeway stations.
I suspect that there are plenty of folks with the storm hitting right now, that would mind a three hour ride to Cleveland over driving in ice and snow?
That's why the Chicago Detroit trains are empty today, right? Time competitive speeds on multi centeer mid distance routes in the 90-100 range on these flat wide distances, makes that trip timescompetitve, and high frequency services on route like that, with major metropolitan hub connections, are what actully fill most of the rail passenger seats in the world.
It would be just awful to invest in services with speeds to 90 and 110, and addimg more frequent and trains, because instead of every other day service to Phoenix, most people would be actually able to make real use of good rail passenger service in these kind of corridors, right?
But, thank you for mansplainng and speaking for all of those potential consumers...
Have a Happy Thanksgiving, as the "Uncle Karen" at the family dinner, too!
