Does it get your jollies off? After all, isn't that's what you really come to AP to troll for?

Meanwhile, I tend to agree with scottybo on his very "optimistic" schedule, given the current rate of progress, due to the bloat, waste, and incompetence. Yes, they got a pass on the existing match issue, as FRA had no real standards for timely use. No, they are not making much progress.

What the videos are really good for is comparing them to the Brightline progress, and to show the sheer waste from the bloated desisgn and costly structures.
