That's what helped to kill the so-called "High-Speed Rail" project in Mexifornia. Even the project developers admitted that the optimal outcome of the current plan would run all of the lines through areas which prohibit high-speed lines.
So every time a 'Bullet Train" came to a large metropolitan area, they would have to slow to match speeds with the other trains, adding many hours to the commute time from "A" to "B".
Sensing that few would be likely to be willing to travel through boom towns like Modesto to get to Frisco in four hours instead of one hour on a plane for the same price, Gov. Newsom decided he didn't want to be remembered for being the governor in office when the state went bankrupt building what is now being called the Brown-doggle.
What. A. Bunch. Of. Morons.
