A couple of thoughts that occured after pressing Submit... There was and is a basic fallacy that HSR is supposed to compete with air travel between N & S California. That doesn't work. Yes, it's th

But Hyperloop! Train through the Earth's Core! Maglev in vacuum tube doing 10,000 miles an hour! (Didn't I see a movie about that? It's in all sorts of SciFi books, often as a plot starter after tu

In this case Mr. Mouse is not far off the original plan. Something near San Jose is in fact a necessary stop - perhaps, really, the appropriate north end of high speed running - and being part of the

I-5 between Sacramento and LA is designed for 70-80 mph in a well-maintained passenger car. It has too many trucks for anybody to come near that as an average, though >100 mph is commonly seen in spur

No worries. I doubt we'll agree on this, and that's okay. You speak of HSR as if it were some harebrained scheme like a Muskian Hyperloop, which makes me wonder again if you've ever traveled to Europe

Have been lurking, occasionally, but... Rampant greed and political hubris were sufficient for the HSR debacle. Good old-fashioned stupidity was a factor, but really just an add-on. The idea, reall

Interesting. And it failed because of the introduction of HSR. Sound like the Hyperloop.

Perhaps Drump would approve a hyperloop tube that delivers Big Macs directly to his bedroom at the WH?

One of the fundamental problems with Hyperloop is its capacity. When you multiply the vehicle passenger capacity by the number of vehicles per hour you get about 1/3 the capacity of a track. Anoth

Wow, I'm impressed with the question..... Hyperloop, from all I have read an seen, is basically a variation on the maglev, using linear induction propulsion, but in a tube, with a vacuum to reduce

Have you ever noticed that every time Tesla reports it is failing to meet anything close to its production goals for the EV's, and making Musk's investors really nervous about whether they'll ever see

You didn't read it all, and were just looking for things to diss. The main line (high speed or just decent speed) from LA to the Bay Area will be in the SJV. That's a done deal and it makes more sense

BART in Market St. and Oakland was kind of the ultimate cut & cover due to the depth and horrid conditions. I think I saw that line about cut & cover being easier on the neighbors in the TRAINS art

Very true. A direct route along 99 would take out the centers of several small towns, with community impacts and costs related to that but little or no possibility of service (call Amtrak or Greyh

Bob: much of what you see in CAHSR is a result of the way the politically-designed (mainly to fund a few commuter and BART projects, which did happen) Proposition was written. I would challenge you to

You all have good points, and Bob's mention in passing of lanes on I-5 is very much to the point. Even at mid-day on a Sunday it's a solid train of trucks in the 2 right lanes (and sometimes the 3rd)

Let's postulate a universe where instead of the CAHSR/Kopp boondoggle we got, say, $10B to fill in gaps and set up a real California Passenger Railroad system. Granted that it wouldn't be 200mph HSR,
