Have there been any studies done to compare costs of Regular Rail vs High Speed rail? I'd be interested in "how much more" HSR would cost, what are issues etc. While I'd like to see a start regardless, I think it would be very cool if Ohio took the lead on HSR. Maybe other states would follow us.
I cannot understand for the life of me why people don't get this.
Rus has a point too. Is this a priority over education, employment, health care, etc. The truth is that snail rail "could" fail, and so "could" HSR, but which one would you make an investment of your personal resources in? Would you increase your taxes to fund it, only to use it a "few" times throughout the year? Is the 3C more important than say a local rail line? If given your choice, which would you rather have, 3C or a rail line in Columbus?
