  1. The China HSR line across Siberia, Bering Sea, Alaska, British Columbia is a big ambition to dream to. To bad the US hasn’t had anything like this really since the space race to the moon.

  2. IMHO it’s silly. Maybe a freight line would make sense, but HSR would be best utilized moving people between cities within a few hours of each other – the kind of trips where flights roads (for bus or car) are impractical.

  3. I agree, but they could built a freight line and leave space for a high speed line, so when travel by air ever comes to costly, there could be an alternative. It is just a dream to inspire though.
