Some time back it looked that finally US was joining the rest of the “civilized world” by drawing up a vision of a High Speed rail network. London to Frankfurt rail connection is currently being tested. Span is investing in its future by rapidly expanding its high speed network. China is looking to expand its railway line in Tibet to make it easier to reach Mt. Everest.

But, here the ambitious plans for the US High Speed already seem to be shaky with the outcome of the November elections. Here’s hoping that common sense will prevail but with the current crop of politicians looking towards vested interests to fill their election coffers, this is becoming an uphill battle.
