21st Century Rail Transportation for America

State of the art in trains   

High speed trains are the central component of a high speed rail system. The other key components include special high performance dedicated track, and advanced signalling systems. High speed trains are specially designed and assembled as secure 'trainsets' to operate at speeds of 186 - 225 mph. Technologically sophisticated and visually impressive, these trains are being built and expanded all over the world. They are sleek, fast, and comfortable, and offer a variety of amenities that make traveling and commuting a relaxing pleasure.

"Running from horizon to horizon, highly polished rails shimmer in the morning sun. It is quiet, but then the rails start to quiver and reverberate... the air suddenly moves... a sucking sound... and WHOOSH!! Four hundred tons of metal blitz by. As quick as it came it's gone, the vibrating overhead wires twitching and resonating with an alien sound are the only traces of its passing.

The sheer exhilaration of seeing a high speed train flat out at maximum speed is astonishing. Human senses are not prepared to take in a massive train rocketing along the ground at 3 miles a minute or faster."  -Brian Solomon, Bullet Trains
