Transrapid Revival on the Canary Islands? Berlin Pushes Industry on High-Speed Maglev Rail – SPIEGEL ONLINE – News – International.

Transportation Ministry deputy Rainer Bomba recently took Siemens executive board member Siegfried Russwurm to task, suggesting that the company could show a little more enthusiasm for the Tenerife project.

Privately, Bomba vented his displeasure over manufacturers dragging their feet, saying sarcastically, “The customer is threateningto make an order.”That could, in fact, happen soon. Melchior says that he already has funding commitments for a portion of the estimated €3 billion maglev route. He intends to tap into Europe’s subsidy coffers and the wallets of private investors for the rest.

Riled about rail: Why all the anger over high speed trains? – CNN.com.

Much of the opposition to rail projects appears to stem not from economic arguments, but from fundamental cultural values on what “American” transportation should be.

Chamber turns to tough talk on Scott, SunRail – The Bottom Line – Beth Kassab on Business – Orlando Sentinel

Chamber turns to tough talk on Scott, SunRail – The Bottom Line – Beth Kassab on Business – Orlando Sentinel.

Very cool story. Perhaps some major hyperbole, but you should read it and scroll down to the comments. One of them is exactly on comment. Highways are not free and do not “make money”-  whatever that means.

Scott’s lawyer admits he gave Fla. Supreme Court wrong info in high-speed rail argument

Scott’s lawyer admits he gave Fla. Supreme Court wrong info in high-speed rail argument.


Gov. Rick Scott’s legal counsel Thursday told the Florida Supreme Court that
he made an inaccurate representation on the amount of money already spent on
the state’s high-speed rail project — a key detail that may have helped
cinch the governor’s victory in a constitutional tug-of-war.

In a two-page letter to Chief Justice Charles Canady, Scott’s general counsel,
Charles Trippe, acknowledged he misrepresented a central fact in arguments
last month supporting the governor’s rejection of $2.4 billion in federal
funds for the project linking Tampa with Orlando.

Sen. Thad Altman, R-Viera, one of two senators who sued Scott saying he had
exceeded his constitutional authority in killing the project, said Thursday
evening that Trippe’s letter is a “huge admission.”
