Subject: RE: BS: Airline Nightmare.
You wonder sometimes what the railroads would be like now if all the money hadn't been diverted into air travel and highways.

Say I wanted to visit my daughter in Salt Lake. 2000 miles +/- at 150 mph would be...13+ hours. I could be there overnight in a sleeper car. If we had maglev monorails it might be 250 mph and 8 hours...

Dream on.
