Trains For America

More choices for better transportation

Financial study of High Speed Rail stocks (and what that means to the rest of us)

This is not exactly light reading. Charles Morand has written an expansive and challenging report on AltEnergyStocks. It’s full of charts, maps, and informative detail necessary for constructing a viable argument.

Don’t bet on the USA being the next hotspot of HSR development. Keep your eyes on China for that.

The good news is, after one dose ot “sticker shock” after another, is that the incremental approach of raising speeds to the 90-110 mph range is so much more affordable and, it seems to me politically feasible.

I know a lot of you know you way around this kind of challenging material, so I invite your reactions and commentary.

    I’d like to see “fast” trains, 90-110 mph. We can get a lot more bang for the buck at those speeds than building separate tracks for HSR.
