Business Insider has broadcasted a video showing just how radically a high-speed train would revolutionize our traveling systems. Hyperloop is in the making and has some great projects ahead to making this high-speed train a reality.
According to this video, the US railroad network is composed of about 140,000 miles of tracks. Many passengers travel by train at only 50 mph. The top speed of the fastest train, AMTRACK, is on average anywhere between 80-90 MPH.
A new vision for high-speed trains would connect to all the U.S major cities of a 170,000 mile network. Here is how it would be mapped out.
