Journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.

Rail makes sense in some corridors, like the Boston->NY->Washington. But generally, it is not going to better aircraft over longer distances. Aviation still has a lot of room to grow and improve, and it is far more flexible than rail.

Adherents of high speed rail travel love the French TGV, but don't understand the economics or the path dependencies that got the French to where they are.

I'm afraid, in the US, high speed rail is like the airship dream.
