Amtrak To Launch New Line Of Acela Trains In 2021

Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting, Harry. They’re coming along nicely. I’m glad to see how much more TGV-like they look. Much more so than the current Acela trains. I’m glad they didn’t deviate too much from the concept renderings. Can’t wait to ride them. On my “bucket list” of trains around the world that I’d like to ride.

I Wish America gets more High Speed Rails, according CNBC they're not High-Speed Rail according to their Standards.

Unfortunately, America doesn't seem to like to invest in infrastructure.

Why?

Two reasons:

1) Americans always believe the government is screwing everyone on taxes because of how opponents frame everything spending plan as waste; and

2) everything that could benefit the masses is framed as Soviet-style socialism unless - like highways, policing and education - it benefits the wealthy by lowering their costs.

Bet if they made HSR for freight then the masses would get behind it since it means faster product delivery and lower warehouse costs (shift warehousing to sellers instead of producers).

The simple fact of the matter is we don’t trust the government to do a project in a timely and cost effective manner.

 

NASA is getting shown up by SpaceX.

 

the “Space Launch System” booster is several years behind schedule and was forced by several members of Congress to be a “Shuttle-Derived Launch vehicle” so their constituents automatically keep that NASA money rolling in, because they made the parts for the shuttle.

 

CHSR is getting shown up by Virgin Trains.

The entire 240 mile line from Miami to Orlando looks to open LONG before the 175 mile iso in California, aside from the fact the line in Florida actually goes places people want to go.

This is why i Blame Republicans for Why US will never built more HSR and never invest by modernizing Infrastructure yet they invest more in military to fight in endless wars which cost More than 1 Million Lives especially in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria, Also Republicans Killed NASA??? Smh, This is why it made me to vote fro Democratic Presidential Candidates and Governor who are more Left-Wing.

Now Millions of Business are Closing thanks to Trump's and Republicans Reckless Policies.

you mean the republicans who created Amtrak in the first place?

The republicans who have given NASA everything they’ve asked for these last few years?

If Obama has his way when he was first elected, the ISS would be in a million pieces at the bottom of the ocean already. 
 

Take it from someone who is in the unenviable position of having the fringe elements of BOTH sides hate me;

 

nether side is made up of saints. Nether side is somehow better than the other. When push comes to shove, they all suck.
