@aaronpk "high speed" ;) But yeah, the US needs more trains
@aaronpk nice write up, thanks! One of the images doesn’t load for me.

I mean, all the amenities you describe are very nice, but having trains that fast would be life-changing for of lot of people in the PNW, even if you had to dine on stale crackers.
