Many of us work on the train from time to time. So never mind 70mph -
how would the connection hold up at 186mph

Can you even get a voice connection at that speed?


The problem becomes Doppler shift at this sort of speed. plus if the
windows are not closed, wind noise.



I think I would avoid a train that allowed the windows to be open at 186mph.

I could envision a Texas goober opening the window at that speed to allow
his dog to hang his head out.




Or get a clear view of what he's shooting at.

I'd settle for an 86 MPH train in the U.S.! When a Swiss visitor rode
the train from San Jose to San Francisco, his comment was 'these are
like the Swiss trains from the 1800's.'


I don't think trains will ever run at Euro speeds in the U.S. There are
too many derailments now due to poor track conditions and numerous grade
crossings to make hi-speed rail transit a safe reality. Americans have
a white-knuckle grip on their own steering wheels and won't give up the
opportunity to squeeze out a fart whenever they want in the privacy of
their rubber tired vehicles, open windows or not. Nope, passenger rail
transit in the U.S. is a very dead issue.


I'm not so sure. We're now entering a permanent era of fossil fuel scarcity,
with the price of oil headed ever higher. When gasoline hits (say) $5/gallon,
there may well be renewed interest in high-speed rail, which is far more
energy efficient than alternative modes of transportation.

Amtrak was their only hope
and it's very existance for a long time now solely depends upon their
government sugar daddy. ...


All forms of transportation are effectively subsidized. Highways are publicly
owned and maintained, and thus have a large cost advantage over privately
owned and maintained railways. In addition, direct operating costs of private
passenger cars don't begin to pay the social costs of resource depletion,
pollution, and waste.

Plus I need somewhere to put my feet up while I'm drinking my beer.
