Hate to be on one when an earthquake happens. I am not a fan of rail. Too many obstacles on the ground that an airplane doesn't have to deal with at cruising speed. Rail - 11hours 15min to go 1400 miles. An airliner will do it in 2.5 hours cruise. Add a half hour for take off and landing and it is 3 hours. I don't think there is much upside for rail as a long distance passenger transportation system. Save it for freight and short commuter distances.

Meanwhile California can't get 50 miles of track laid for their "High Speed Train" and they still don't have a route through the Tehachapi Mountains.

My wife took the train from Shanghai to Tianjin and back Christmas week. She raves about it. I love the Shanghai subway system. We need these transportation systems in the US

the west short sighted and ideological oriented especially its media doesn't understand economics and sociology in strategic ways. the high speed rails and other infrastructure projects are not for show or bragging rights (those are for typical western politicians) those projects will guarantee the growth of china for next 50 years to come.
